Torrent sites blocked by Trojan...

A trojan named Troj/Qhost-AC has been spotted on torrent sites labeled as a keygen for popular software. But in a strange surprise, the trojan would modify the users host file, rather than generating a key, changing popular torrent web sites like, The Pirate Bay, Suprbay (The Pirate Bay forum) and Mininova, the two most popular torrent sites on the internet to, making it impossible to visit these sites.

The Trojan caused pop-ups on users screens and played a sound file saying "downloading is wrong". The Trojan didn't install any other spyware or malware onto the victims PC, other than blocking the three web sites, something that many users thought was strange.

I know this is not so harmful trojan,but only if you know the technical details.For novoice users it can block their daily torrent spot.So,beware and very before you download torrents using vertor.com
