Actual results:

Adblock Plus has an issue reporting feature to report unblocked ads or issues to the filterlist maintainers like me. Here is an issue report of a user who has "Torrent Handler" (extension ID: "TorrentHandler@TorrentHandler.com") instealled: 

https://reports.adblockplus.org/b42ef6ca-1d8e-bd45-bb8e-45bb5d9fb898#tab=extensions 

It seems it injects these ad links in webpages. 

A user also reported that in the Adblock Plus forum and confirmed that the links were gone after removing that extension:
