BitLord is a proprietary Adware BitTorrent client for Microsoft Windows, macOS and Android.[1] Promoted as "The easiest torrent downloader", the program uses the libtorrent-rasterbar C++ library. BitLord is as of version 2.4 built using Python and the Qt cross-platform framework. It is capable of streaming video, using a built in version of VLC.[2]

History

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.

Malicious behavior

Upon download, BitLord will likely download many other programs and files, such as MyPc Backup and RegClean Pro and might also change your default search engine to Conduit search.[3] MyPc Backup and RegClean Pro are both often cited as adware and browser hijackers.[4][5]
