Simple Lies, Told as Fact. There is no spyware in BitTorrent. There is no way BitTorrent is being tricked into delivering spyware. We hear that BitTorrent files are “infected.” What specific to BitTorrent is infected? Is it the BitTorrent initiation files? Or is it the payload? If it’s the payload (the media file, for example) then what’s it got to to do with BitTorrent per se? Nothing, that’s what.
