Never had any problem with them. You just need to be sure you port is correctly set so the people on the other end can "see" your computer, otherwise you can downlaod but you can't upload to others....

Because of the way the program is set up, people downloading the file from your computer, will only see the file. Nothing else.
They can tell if you have the file, and if you are seeding. That's it. You can control when you seed, and how much you seed.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

as chester confirms below- I've been doing it for 6 years now... never a problem. the big hassle is getting your ports right, your firewall to let in and out traffic, etc. If you open up too big it is a security issue and not enough you can only download, you can't upload.... but if you have decent internet speed give it a try. I use utorrent, which is freeware. Very simple and it helps set up your security much better than Azureus (another one that works well).

I use UTorrent as well. Very good program. I just grabbed this last night off Etree. A new Charlie Miller sbd. I highly reccommend it. : )

My brother uses "FrostWire" .....

does that sound like an unsafe or illegal download site that is likely giving us viruses?
