Using any P2P (peer-to-peer) file sharing program is a security risk. Even if you use a spyware-free P2P application, you still have to contend with the possibility of downloading malicious files from unknown sources and infecting your system. P2P networks have infected files on them and many have malware bundled with their software. Using P2P software makes you susceptible to a smörgåsbord of malware infections, remote attacks, and exposure of personal information.
