Top 10,000 torrents in BitTorrent networks

Supplementary notes

Note: Note that the analysis of the top 10,000 swarms contained here does not include 139 files which contained enough leechers to merit inclusion within the top 10,000 but were found to be fake. Fake files are often uploaded to bittorrent by interdiction companies hoping to confuse downloaders or by virus and malware distributors. The top 10,000 is therefore the top 10,000 non-fake files – or to put it another way, the top 10,139 files with the fake files removed.
