I also get a warning about this file. I'm using BitTorrent and ZoneAlarm Pro. ZoneAlarm informs me that "DNA.exe is trying to transmit email messages". Kinda worries me when a program is trying to send emails from my PC - what's in the email?

DNA.exe is a file that is part of the the Bit Torrent client. It is located in the C:\Program Files\BitTorrent_DNA\ folder.

DNA.exe

...It’s a part of bit torrent's network. “Delivery Network Acceleration” It seems that bit torrent uses this to get connected and stay connected to its peers, and seems to be very aggressive in doing so. It is consistently sending data across the stream and is pushing other services away for the sake of itself, regardless if its in danger or not...
