      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.

    uTorrent does NOT operate at a level where it's actually possible to be the root cause of the bluescreen from a code standpoint. Get bluescreenview and find out the REAL culprit.

    utorrent has nothing to do with the torrent IP address.

    1> turn down the disk cache farther. 2> Three words for your wall of text on that: SET DOWNLOAD LOCATION. If you're getting errors, double-check the security properties on the new location and/or run uTorrent as admin.

    Generally, that folder is fine. No other folders.

    Please note that only Pro users get dedicated email support as stated on the main site http://www.utorrent.com/ Ad-Free users should still post their issues or questions at the forums. I will ask our developers to check at the popup issue. Thanks for the report. -Synx

    Strange, that it is marked as "stable" so soon ... (maybe due to lack of any significant changes...)

    How many of your seeding torrents actually have transfers happening?

    In either of these case when I had MSE and now Defender with Windows 10 I never had problems with utorrent running. I think it was configured wrong or something was messed in the MSE install that caused the problem. I also have 50mbps and had at most 5-7 mbps downloads because torrent doesn't follow your ISP bandwidth it follows how many seeders it has to decrease or increase the speeds. So don't equate ISP speeds with torrents just because you have 50mbps doesn't associate with 50mpbs torrent.

    Hey guys is it possible to make an option to select the network interface in uTorrent? This will be very useful when using a VPN solely for torrenting, because this future allows us to only use the network interface of the VPN. I know you can already use the option to bind uTorrent to the IP of your VPN service, but since the IP is most of the time dynamic I would have to change it every time I connect to the VPN which is quite annoying. Much love and thanks for considering

    Hi there, I'm wondering if anyone else noticed this. I can obtain good upload speeds when everything is crusing (500KB/s). This lasts for a minute or two, and then I stop uploading. If I stop the torrent and then restart it, I notice that the peer count updates and I connect and start uploading again. This goes on for as long as I want to sit in front of my computer milking uploads. If I leave my computer unattended overnight, a series of very active torrents will only yield about 100MB of upload. This should be in the GB range averaging 100KB/s. I'm using version 2.2.1. I have a port properly forwarded through my router. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to attach all my settings here. Is my IP or any sensitive info in the settings.dat files? Thanks for your help.
