Almost one and half year back we posted a small introduction on BitTorrent and now we are updating again BitTorrent Seminar Report shared by Shyam Prakash of CSE branch , 2011 from CUSAT, Kerala and was guided by Mrs. Sheikha Variz
Brief Introduction on BitTorrent
BitTorrent is the name of a peer-to-peer (P2P) file distribution protocol, and is the name of a free software implementation of that protocol. The protocol was originally designed and created by programmer Bram Cohen, and is now maintained by BitTorrent Inc.
BitTorrent is designed to distribute large amounts of data widely without incurring the corresponding consumption in costly server and bandwidth resources. CacheLogic suggests that BitTorrent traffic accounts for 55% of all traffic on the Internet, while other sources are sceptical.
The original BitTorrent client was written in Python. Its source code, as of version has been released under the BitTorrent Open Source License, which is a modified version of the Jabber Open Source License. There are numerous compatible clients, written in a variety of programming languages, and running on a variety of computing platforms.

Why is bittorent so prone to spyware and viruses
can you post info that i can study and read up on
and how secure is it because of this
It's totally depend upon us to invite viruses, worms to spoil our day and carsh systems.
Most of the viruses, worm become active only after manual conscent. If you open good, trusted websites and if you download files after seeing all the file contents, screenshots, comments then I think there would be very less chance that your system would get infected.
I am using torrent clients and surfing so many websites to download files using torrent, but I have not faced any issues till date.
I use very few websites to search torrent files and I use ESET's NOD32 antivirus which also checks each and every file in better way.
