BitTorrent is a P2P file sharing program designed to quickly disseminate files in a distributed fashion. This network is relying on the presence of trackers to synchronize the file status. These trackers are dedicated server running by default on port 6969 but they are often running on port 80 or 443 as well. This signature fires when a BitTorrent client connects to a tracker to retrieve information about the actual download.
