We have an apology to make. In the past we reviewed and recommended many torrent sites, but it now appears that these type of sites have to be avoided if possible.
Research from Cyberdefender, a respectable web security outfit, shows that visiting these sites can lead to a disastrous outcome. You’ve been warned.
“Avoid torrent sites at all costs – even if they are safe (not malicious), some of the ads found in torrent sites can compromise your computer’s security.”
“How to avoid it: Stick to official downloads/streams such as iTunes, Hulu/Hulu Plus, Netflix and legitimate websites. Downloading illegal software can expose your computer to trojans and spyware.”
Oh yeah, and you shouldn’t play any games either.This post is from the News Bits section of TorrentFreak where we present stories from around the web in a concise summary format.
