      Important Security Advisory   06/07/2016

      On June 6th, 2016, BitTorrent was made aware of a security issue involving the vendor which powers our forums.
      The vulnerability appears to have been through one of the vendor’s other clients, however it allowed attackers to access some information on other accounts. As a result, attackers were able to download a list of our forum users. We are investigating further to learn if any other information was accessed.Our vendor has made backend changes so that the hashes in the file do not appear to be a usable attack vector. As a precaution, we are advising our users to change their passwords. While the passwords may not be used as a vector on the forums, those hashed passwords should be considered compromised. Anyone using the same password for forums as well as other places is strongly advised to update their passwords and/or practice good personal security practices.

  2. Instead of installing: Exit uTorrent if it's running, then simply put the downloaded newer version of uTorrent.exe into the installation folder (overwriting the previous version). Then launch uTorrent. PS Previous, older versions of uTorrent are (/should be) stored in the updates folder.
  3. Yesterday
  4. please reply pls ;((
  5. From where did that message come from?
  6. What your router does and allows is nothing utorrent can do about it. You need to contact your Router support to talk to them to fix the problem. What in the past are you talking about? When I see utorrent saying closed means to me the destination is dead or closed from torrent connection. I got UPnp enable and have no problem with utorrent. It sounds more like a router problem from the read of it.
  7. Last week
  8. I understand, but in the past it allowed all sorts of ports to be forwarded from uTorrent, but now it doesn't. Also as you can see for some reason uTorrent says it is closed in the program, but in the other port checker online tests it's open. Also I can't seed at all. Also am I getting something wrong here? Is it a problem with my router or my uTorrent settings? Since in the past it worked fine and my router or my uTorrent didn't seem picky about ports. All I had to do in the past is enable UPnP on my router and every port that I would put in uTorrent would be forwarded.
  9. Nothing we can do if your router only allows that one port to be forwarded
  10. Thank you, will give it a try... re: security... I was told this version has no known security vulnerabilities.......is there a way to verify ?
  11. I've just ran into this problem. Weirdly enough uTorrent can only open port 25565. Everything else doesn't work. I've tried setting the exception for any other port I used in the firewall, running uTorrent as administrator, restarting my computer, enabling and disabling UPnP and NAT-PMP port mapping, but nothing seems to work. I've never seen this before, whenever I changed the port it would be open in uTorrent and on the port checker website. Does anyone have a solution? For the record, I am using uTorrent version 3.5 (build 43916) on Windows 10. P.S I checked my ports on canyouseeme.org and weirdly enough 25565 is open on the website, albeit uTorrent saying it's closed but downloads are still available. P.S.S I can't forward any port on my router, since the router doesn't have the option for port forwarding. I've called my ISP and that's what they said, can confirm myself as well, there is no option to open ports. Reposting, since the last one I posted wasn't reviewed since Friday.
  12. AVG has gotten worse and worse for system performance and system interference over the past few years. Have you tried with it temporarily uninstalled?
  13. Yes, once it starts it stays active with no issues.
  14. And does it remain active until it finish?
  15. Put this way you will have to restart your torrents in Windows 7 setup. If you copied the appdata/userfolder the new setup must match exactly as the old setup to work with the ext. Drive otherwise it will loose all the info and you will have to restart each torrents from the beginning again. I know this because even when I installed Windows 10 and kept the appdata/user folder I had to restart all the torrents again even when using the exact same setup. So what you need to do is read the utorrent migration instructions before you update otherwise if you loose the torrents there's nothing anyone can do to help you.
  16. The site you use recommends you open security holes on your system.
  17. Understood! But it is the recommended application for the site I use. would creating them in Xp & trying to view them in win 7 on a different pc have any impact ? If not is there a basic way to do this with a supported ver... might crossover to this version
  18. AVG Antivirus Free version: 17.5.3022 Build 1.201.3.9167 Windows Firewall (everything allowed for µTorrent) Firewall on my router is disabled
  19. OS - Windows 10 64-bit µTorrent 3.5 (build 43916) [32-bit] ISP - CenturyLink VDSL BTGuard for µTorrent only Any time I add a torrent file to download, whether it's a downloaded .torrent or through a magnet link, it will show it as an active torrent but will not initiate any connection to any tracker or peers until after I reboot my computer. I do have BTGuard as a VPN entered into the settings, but this is something I've noticed since before I added that. Stopping then starting the torrent doesn't get it going. I do have the green checkmark in the lower right corner of the window but it will occasionally go to the triangle with the exclamation point but after I have it run the connection tests it shows green. Exiting out of µTorrent and restarting the program does seem to work. I'd just like to figure out why it's not immediately downloading the torrent.
  20. Step 1> update as 2.2.1 hasn't been supported for a few years now.
  21. i saved my torrents on an external hard drive using Utorrent on a pc using win xp. i was able to upgrade to a system using win 7, and installed same ver of Utorrent. Now utorr wont recognize the torrents created with xp, can you direct me to how i can get the torrents recognized on the new system.... when created on xp - external hard drive recognized as E: , same label on win 7. Can down load new torrent to hard drive just fine,just can't get the older ones back in seeding que win 7 home premium sp1 UTorr 2.2.1 build 25302 ISP - comcast Thank you, 1oldguy

  23. I am running windows 7 home premium on this desktop, but i have the same issue on my laptop. uTorrent version 3.51 (43916). ISP AT&T. when I select to download a file(s), the popup window will sometimes connect to the torrent and sometimes not. It almost seems random. It is not dependent on the number of seeds nor is it linked to a certain torrent site. the loading circle continues to spin and sometimes it may load a torrent file after 15 - 20 minutes and sometimes never. Other times it loads the torrent immediately. I have noticed that if the pop up window doesn't register or list the files that hitting OK to accept the torrent is pointless. Reloading the magnetic links doesn't seem to help either. any suggestions?
  24. What happens if you stop all the torrents before closing it and then when you reopen just start only one torrent and then close it down. What does it do when you do that?
  25. its already sit to true...
  26. Thanks for correcting me. I meant the files contained in two different torrents are identical.. not the torrent file itself. I think a working MANUAL fix is to add the tracker from one of the torrents to the other, and nuke the other torrent. That is a little tedious. The torrent's hashes would be different because they are not the same torrents... but the files the torrents are linked to are 100% identical. This reminds me of a murder trial in which their computer "experts" were ignorant. They were telling the jury that if you found a file on two different computers with the same hashes, then the file had to come from the same person. Nonsense. a "hash" is a checksum to indicate that a file is the same rather than comparing every byte of the file to check that they are the same. For a hash of a file to be identical, the file length has to be identical. However, just because the file length is identical, the data might not be the same. Two different pictures can have exactly the same length. The checksum is a value created by adding up every byte of the data. For instance.. in modular arithmetic... the data 502 mod 20 would be 2 (502 - 25 rollovers of 20). 522 mod 20 would also be 2.. however 512 mod 20 would be 12. So, it IS possible to have the same checksum even though the data is not completely the same, but so unlikely for a long file that it is virtually impossible. Anyway, in the trial, they misled the jury into thinking that the falsely accused person sent a file to multiple destinations because the hashes were identical. WRONG! If the hashes were different, then it would be impossible for the accused to be the source for all instances of the file.. however, just because the hashes were the SAME doesn't mean squat. If I sent a file to you, and you sent that file to someone else without editing it or re-encoding it and it still had the same file length.. and whoever received that file sent it someplace else... that file is always going to have the same hashes. In that trial, it was absurd, because they blamed the accused person of sending that file, when he was in custody at the time it was sent, and in a different country. The person who posted it did so from an account on opposite side of the planet (Australia) and continues to post messages and files to this day. One of the charges against the accused was based upon him sending this file (which he did not). Since the idiot computer experts told the jury he sent it, the accused got convicted of an additional charge of a few years... but it is far worse than that. By having that additional charge, the man who would be eligible for parole is NOT eligible for parole because of a "dangerous offender" designation. One tiny technical lie to the jury resulting in a sentencing that will keep this man in prison for roughly 50 years at which time he will die of old age. Don't worry.. I will eventually take care of it when I have the time and money to take a trip. I already know who the actual killer was - who spent years framing the accused guy. The actual killer committed suicide months after the murder after confessing. The actual killer's confession was never heard by the jury.
  27. That doesn't indicate that utorrent initiated the problem. That screen shot says it crashed it didn't say utorrent was the problem. So what else are you running when it crashes?
