Exclamation Hacked through Bit Torrent

I beleive that is is through bittorrent that My computer got hacked. My Windows folder was scanned, compressed and mailed while my computer was running in the background. I have logs leftover is anyone wants to see. Is there a way to be more secure with Bit Torrent, like how to spoof or hide your actual IP?

i would blame it on internet explorer on such rather than on bt. since bt is nothing else than some kind of specialized simple browser that can't run any script

I wasen't using IE, I used Mozilla Firebird, and Azureus java client. I think it was Azureus to be more specific.

If you're using windows...make sure to update it...cause just recently there have been a few critical updates for such things as that...

and Mozilla Firebird might be more secure then IE but it still doesn't mean it's impenetrable...you might of gotten some kind of virus/spyware installed on your comp w/o you even knowing...

um... azureus is java. Java isn't full proof but VERY hard to 'hack' because it has so much builtin protection. I'm not saying it couldn't be done but I would look else where for the cause... namely something that was built in c/c++ as it is usually alot easier to do a buffer overflow/execute scripts/blah blah with them if they wern't using 'secure programming techniques' etc...

Because BitTorrent uses so many connections I doubt it is possible to hide your IP while allowing you to maintain that many connections at the same time. Furthermore it is quite unlikely that you were hacked through BT. Like Superchop said, Windows could be the problem. Do your logs say the attacker was one of the IPs that connected to you on BT?
