The BitTorrent protocol is just a way to transfer files. It has nothing to do with the content of the files one transfers with them.
Wrong. I've seen people get viruses from torrent files. Not from the BitTorrent software itself, but the files they download. It's a known fact among internet security circles that there are viruses and malware in torrents. I could show you posts on malware removal help forums where people have gotten infected this way. If you don't think so, you are not in reality.
