Some of you may already be aware of this but I did want to give a heads up to all about a torrent client called "ZipTorrent".

Below is an extract from an article titled:
ZipTorrent Pollutes and Slows Down Popular Torrents (http://torrentfreak.com/ziptorrent-pollutes-and-slows-down-popular-torrents/). Click on the link for the full article.

BitTorrent users are facing a new enemy. A BitTorrent client named ZipTorrent, allegedly created by our friends from the anti-piracy organization Media Defender, leeches bandwith and spreads useless data chunks.

This should not be an issue on our tracker, ( I think its mostly used for sites that contain illegal downloads )
but just in case, if anyone notices it being used here, please notify Yeeshkul staff of the IP range.
