I'm not sure if I posted it in the right forum?

I keep getting an error message when trying to add picture, I'm not allowed to use this file extension?

Read this... http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/torrent-is-not-valid-bencoding-utorrent-users-on-proxy-hit-with-isp-block-10138765.html

 

Scores of uTorrent users are now reporting being hit with 'Torrent is not valid bencoding' error messages however, which appear when they try and open a file in uTorrent or BitTorent.

 

It has been posited that ISPs are corrupting the torrents on purpose, as the proxy only works for access to sites in browsers, and won't cover the launching of the torrent.

Tip 14: Be vigilant when using Peer-To-Peer Software

Using a program like Bittorrent for legitimate applications is perfectly fine. On the other hand, if you use P2P applications for copyrighted movies or software there is a good chance that they may contain Trojans as well. It is very common for malware developers to distribute malware on P2P networks that pretends to be a program required to view a movie or play a game. Therefore, it is strongly suggested that you do not use Peer-to-Peer software for illegal activities as you will probably get what you pay for.
