Peer-to-Peer Programs Warning
In today's world cyber crime has come to an enormous dimension and any means is used to infect personal computers to make use of their stored data or machine power for further propagation of the malware files. A popular means is the use of file-sharing tools as a tremendous amount of prospective victims can be reached through it.
It is therefore possible to be infected by downloading manipulated files via peer-to-peer tools and thus suggested to be used with intense care.

I have been downloading torrent files (predominantly music) for a few years now and have never had any problems with infections.
I ask this question because I am currently using vuze (formerly Azereus) to D/L my files. When I exit the application (vuze) my firewall (comodo) starts to block a number of intrusion attempts. Comodo indicates that it blocked attempts to access the windows operating system (through destination port 33913). Comodo shows that it is blocking an IP address (that was connected to me through Vuze) from carrying out this action.
