uTorrent peers for DDoS Attack

Is it possible to use the IP list of Peers connected to the uTorrent while you downloading a file, be used as potencial "Attackers" for a DDoS Attack?

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS)

A distributed denial of service (DoS) attack, or DDoS, is much like the ping flood method, only multiple computers are being used. In this instance, the computers that are being used may or may not be aware of the fact that they are attacking a website or network. Trojans and viruses commonly give the hacker control of a computer, and thus, the ability to use them for attack. In this case the victim computers are called zombies.

Sure man, anything's possible. You'll need a 0-day in uTorrent first. You could also do what some of those fake file search websites do and distribute trojans via torrents renamed to match search keywords. Something like this:

A search for 'grape soda' returns as its top result a torrent for "Girls&Tentacle_GrapeSoda_HOT!-VIDEO!_892.avi.exe"

Keep in mind this all frowned upon and pretty boring.
