Maybe You Shouldn't Stream Torrents In Your Browser

Torrents-Time is an interesting little browser plugin that lets you stream torrents without needing to download a whole separate client. It’s a boon for anyone who needs a simple way to torrent, but as a few people are pointing out, it’s also horribly insecure.

The World's Oldest Torrent Is Enjoying New Popularity

The oldest torrent that is currently still active is a fan-made ASCII render of The Matrix, and it was shared with the internet through BitTorrent on December 20, 2003.

But good news for pirates over the weekend — a torrent release group has cracked the encryption on Netflix and Amazon’s 4K video lockers, and ultra high-def rips of brand new TV shows are flooding out across the ‘net.

You Can Get Arrested In Denmark Just For Spreading Information About Popcorn Time 

“Netflix for torrents” service Popcorn Time has always dealt with legal threats from copyright holders.

But now, even people spreading information about Popcorn Time can run into legal problems.
