BitLord is a proprietary Potentially unwanted Adware BitTorrent client for Microsoft Windows, macOS and Android.

History[edit]

BitLord was first released in December 2004, as BitLord 0.56, based on and under license from BitComet. From version 1.2 until 2.3.2, BitLord was based on Deluge, but has added several features of its own since then.

BitLord is (as of version 2.4) built using Python and the Qt cross-platform framework, and uses the libtorrent-rasterbar C++ library.

Malicious behavior[edit]

Upon download, BitLord will download many other programs and files, such as MyPc Backup and RegClean Pro, both of which are often cited as adware and browser hijackers.[1][2] It will also change your default search engine to Conduit search.[3]
