This worm has previously attacked social networking sites, but now the new variant takes advantage of bit torrent users. Basically an infected
application from a torrent site opens up the torrent client and runs the worm in the background. I'm surprised torrent specific infection haven't

Very nasty little bugger this one i like the way it splits the binary to evade detection strict firewall rules should help prevent the hidden utorrent
client but above all users are the front line and running new apps in a sandbox first can help prevent infections and not trusting anything you
