Bittorrent link hijacking


Recommended Posts


I was visiting my ISP's website and noticed that some of their gaming words were actually hyperlinks.

I clicked on them and I arrived at an online casino site. Strange that my ISP was promoting gaming.

So I cleaned my browser cache and the links were gone. But returned when I opened my browser.

I tried the same site on another pc and the links were there also.

I ran Hijack This and deleted the Vid-Saver entry on both machines.

I noted the time that the Vid-saver was installed and it was the same time that I updated Bittorrent on my pc and it was the same time that I installed the whole Bittorrent programme on my other machine which is a cleanly formatted machine.

Is Bittorrent putting hijacked hyperlinks with its torrent programme?
