    A bit torrent client is perfectly legal. There is no reason a legit group would do this.

    Legit groups hire hackers and botnet operators all the time. Though this does look more like somebody trying to add to their own botnet.

    Yeah, there is corruption in the system but I doubt it could be taken down for any extended period of time.

    As has been said, wouldn't be the first time copyright protection groups have used ill means. If so, this is more than controversial.

    Fucking hackers, I like uTorrent and is good that they solve it very quickly.
