BitThief - A Free Riding BitTorrent Client
I haven't used torrents for a very long time and saw this application mentioned on another forum.
BitThief is a Java-based BitTorrent client designed to download from, but not upload to, BitTorrent networks. It is freeware and cross-platform. According to the BitThief homepage, it is intended as a proof of concept that there are weaknesses in the current BitTorrent protocol, which can be exploited by "cheating" BitTorrent clients (such as BitThief itself).
It needs JAVA to be installed to run and has a small script to run.
