Kickass Torrents was formerly the most popular file-sharing website, but in 2016, its owner, Artem Vaulin, was arrested and charged with several copyright and money-laundering violations. Although copycat sites, which is maintained by a group of the original KAT staff members, have appeared subsequently, these torrenting sites continue to pose risks to users in areas such as cybersecurity, data protection, and legalities. Downloading copyrighted content is against the law in several countries. Even if you just want to download titles that have been released into the public domain, if you do not safeguard yourself when torrenting, you may find yourself in violation of your country's laws.
