ABSTRACT
Peer-to-peer networks' widespread use makes multimedia files available to users worldwide. However, such networks are often used to spread illegal material while the data source and acquiring users remain anonymous. This article analyzes activity measurements in the BitTorrent network and examines child sex abuse activity through three major BitTorrent Web portals.
