uTorrent isn't exactly a site, it's a program that can be used to download files from other peoples computer. The hosting site contains links to whatever file you are looking for. Since these links can lead to almost anything or anywhere, you do not know for sure where the download is coming from. File names can be changed so on the surface it may seem to be what you want but in reality it can be a nasty infection. If your AV doesn't catch it, you end up here.
