P2P TorjanA new Trojan, named Troj / Qhosts-AC, divisive past few days, panic in the community of P2P Pirate Bay and Mininova. Once the computer infected with this malware, it stops and blocks each download peer to peer.

In practice, the Troj / Qhosts-AC publishes the host file in Windows by making redirects to the IP address 127.0.0.1 (localhost) and activates a pop up showing the inscription "the download is incorrect."

Sophos, which first identified the malicious software, has confirmed that this is something unusual, as ever a Trojan horse capable of blocking operations in a shared environment BitTorrent has been detected.

Obviously, everyone is asking questions about what could be the cause of this type of malware and be the sponsor. The most obvious answer would be the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America), the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) or other associations to fight against piracy and illegal, but so far, there is still no evidence .

Fortunately, the solution for this problem caused by this Trojan is easy. Some small changes to the Hosts file in Windows are sufficient.
