In the daily surfing life on the Internet, people often overlook a problem. When we use peer-to-peer software to access multiple media files, such as books, music, movies, or games, the danger is also closely followed.

Peer-to-peer file sharing is the use of peer-to-peer (P2P) network technology to distribute and share digital media. Take BitTorrent, a popular file-sharing protocol, as an example. It was created by Bram Cohen for P2P file sharing and is a P2P file transfer protocol based on TCP/IP protocol.

P2P file-sharing has many uses, especially among enterprises. But the reality is that the file-sharing protocol BitTorrent is a controversial subject in the security world. Especially, BitTorrent enjoys a "high reputation" in piracy when copyright protection and illegal content are shared equally.

It is estimated that nearly one quarter of Internet traffic infringes copyright. In 2017, the most popular BitTorrent index on almost all the top 50 most popular search phrases is the name of copyright movie or TV program. If users want to use VPN to access P2P file sharing sites, they may want to access illegal content anonymously. If they download illegal content, they are not only responsible for copyright issues, but they can easily download dangerous malicious software without realizing it at all.

Although the danger may not be as common as other areas on the Internet, malicious software can still be inadvertently obtained through P2P file sharing. Remember this unfortunate user who stole more than four bitcoins (worth nearly $2,000 at that time) from his computer after downloading pirated video games infected with malicious software? This risk is still very real. According to ZDNet, P2P file sharing websites infect millions of users every month.
