      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.

    With the current version of uTorrent (and previous versions) you had to set a download location individually for each torrent. It would be a useful feature to be able to select multiple torrents and set a destination folder once for the torrents selected rather than having to do it individually, which is very time consuming with a large selection of torrents.

    When launching uTorrent (i.e. uTorrent.exe), it looks for a file called settings.dat. If it does not find it, uTorrent goes through the installation process. If it finds settings.dat, the program will simply launch. (After saying that, I run uTorrent in I suppose is what you'd called portable mode. That is I don't use the application data folder. All files are stored in one folder in the Program Files folder).
