    Basically while you are downloading a file or files your bittorent client program uploads pieces of the files you are downloading. Nothing to worry about there. In any peer to peer environment there are risks. Protect yourself with good firewall and anti-virus. Be carefull where you download from. The main risk in my opinion is from malware and viruses hidden in downloads especially in keygens. I speak from experience, i once ended up with with a keylogger and had to completely wipe my hard drive ........ lost all data. Just be wise. :D :)
