Hi all,

I'd like to know if there's any security risk using a p2p client like rtorrent ?

Well... you're downloading unknown content from strangers.

Since you'll also be uploading content, someone *might* be able to hack into your system using a vulnerability in rtorrent or a bug in the network stack.

But I would only be minimally worried.
