Top Torrent Site 1337x Blocked By MalwareBytes For Alleged ‘Fraud’

1337x.to, one of the world's most popular torrent sites, is being blocked by anti-malware company MalwareBytes. The tool claims that 1337x is engaged in "fraud" and is a "scam to try to steal your information or credit card details" yet Google gives the torrent site a clean bill of health. MalwareBytes is also claiming the same against PCgames-download.com, without supporting evidence.

People browsing the Internet on a Windows-based computer should always presume that their machines are vulnerable to attack.

From using a decent firewall to anti-virus and similar tools, prevention is always better than cure when it comes to the various threats lurking in the online space.

For people who frequent torrent and streaming sites, the rules are no different. Anti-virus, anti-malware, and sometimes aggressive ad-blocking tools are considered a must, to ensure that rogue adverts or booby-trapped downloads don’t gain traction on a user’s machine.
