How safe is seeding in uTorrent?


Recommended Posts

As far as computer security is involved, I haven't heard of bittorrent protocol or clients being vulnarable to hacker attacks. Other p2p networks have been in the past, though.

If you're talking about legal issues, you are at risk if you are using non-legal torrents. It doesn't matter if you are just seeding or downloading. How much risk is a personal perception and is greatly dependant on your country's legislation. Worldwide, a little less than 15,000 people have been sued over p2p use in different networks. It is estimated that the total number of users is in the order of magnitude of 10 million users. Do the math and consult your lawyer ;)
