What is this pomf.se site that qbitorrent keeps accessing?
« on: October 29, 2018, 01:39:02 PM »
Everytime I open qbittorent, Malwarebytes detects and blocks pomf.se for "trojan" . Is this thing normally present in qbittorrent?

pomf.se used to be a website functioning as a file locker and tracker for BitTorrent. It shut down some time ago, and could be listed as a tracker in qBittorrent.

qBittorrent tries to contact pomf.se as a tracker, because it is listed in some of your torrents. Malwarebytes has the domain of pomf.se listed as a trojan-spreading website, so it blocks the request made by qBittorrent.


To fix this problem, remove the tracker of pomf.se from the affected torrents.
