Is Vuze (Azereus) Safe?

I used to use it. Haven't in a long time. Anyone use it? Is it generally safe to use still? Given I perfer Torrent Scan with it.

I think it itself is safe, but you still have to be careful with what you download with it.

It's never done anything bad to me, though Vuze annoys me so therefore the old skin is the way.

 

Azureus' use of java makes it annoyingly slower than it should be, but....  what other client is better, I ask you.....  there is none, unless you want to go minimalist

The program isn't what you should be concerned about, but the content downloaded is.
There was a massive troll orgy, something involving pushkyn and markoff, fugglesss is always pregnant, and this place is now a sad empty shell of what it once was.

That's all, I guess.

It's perfectly legal. I never specified what I'm going to be downloading.

torrents & p2p networks are also an easy way to get movies that have been released into public domain, like 1984.

which version was releaed into public domain, and i'd say 98% of people using the program have used it illegally.      they're making a remake of 1984 btw

especially after the little incident last week. i got a fecking letter in the mail from the copyright infringement team for warner bros, saying i illegally downloaded a copy of the dark knight. as it turns out, i did, but they wanted to freeze my internet account and take legal action. so far, they haven't, but i don't wanna take that chance again.

As far as the Adult Swim Mods, Ted Turner, and the federal government is concerned it is.

thought so. i did a little more exploring. i thought i was getting a very hq trailer, but as it turns out it was a cam of the entire movie with a trailer included, all wrapped in .rar. i hadn't even unpacked it, and i had the letter in my mailbox when i got back from the hospital. a couple of the trackers for the torrent were being hosted by the organization, so they recorded every ip that connected. of course, my dumb arse runs around in the open online without using any ip mask, so it's just as much my fault as it is anyone else's.
