From the inception, BitTorrent has been under several types of attacks. Most of these attacks were aimed to deteriorate the performance of BitTorrent network or to collapse it.In this paper we have presented the effect of Black-hole attack especially in the case of BitTorrent based VoD services .we have simulated black-hole attack for BitTorrent based VoD services and studied the effect of number of malicious nodes in peer network of various swarm sizes. The number of attacking nodes taken was 1, 2, and 3 whereas the size of swarms was 10, 20 and 30. Also another important parameter taken into consideration for studying the effect was then total number of seeders. We have taken observation for attack simulations for various scenarios depending upon swarm size, numbers of seeder and number of attack nodes.
