      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.

  1. Some explanations on these results: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=error+the+semaphore+timeout+has+expired+utorrent+site%3Aforum.utorrent.com
  2. As there is no 3.5.x Stable thread: 3.5.0.43916 available: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:A424B55AB7942B8E3C9D0578FB56A548540C208B Or try the stable links in signature below. No changelog at time of posting (although most likely same as beta in post above).
  3. uTorrent places all Add New Torrent windows "on top of each other", so you can only deal with one Add New Torrent window at a time (i.e. OK or Cancel). You HAVE to move each window (by clicking & dragging), so just how difficult is it to click on OK or Cancel as well...? So it sounds like you added a whole load of magnet links then just decided to File>Exit without viewing the contents as your intention was... Anyway, each user chooses how they want to use a program. Maybe someone in the know can confirm whether adding un-downloaded magnet links to Labels>Hidden is an actual bug or by design...
  4. vpn

    Best is subjective. Start here though: https://torrentfreak.com/vpn-services-anonymous-review-2017-170304/
  5. "The user" didn't click Cancel either. But why would you do File>Exit after adding the magnet link when the Add New Torrent dialogue window was open? That doesn't make any sense at all. So unless you click Cancel, uTorrent must assume you WANT to add the torrent. "OK" is just for confirming your file selections/options within the Add New Torrent dialog window after torrent data has been retrieved, and then for the contents within that torrent to then start downloading. I do wonder why it is under Labels>Hidden though. Under Torrents would be more appropriate.
  6. You can remove it via the Sidebar column. If not already visible, then Press F7. Alternatively, Options>Show Sidebar. Check under Labels>(click on) Hidden. The torrent (magnet) will now be showing in µTorrent's main window. Right-click on it>Remove, or Remove And>Delete .torrent/Delete torrent & data + Data/Delete Data.
  7. 3.5.0.43900 now available: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:7CD43A0F9416B9396DA9C28FD40F2AD698CF00DC Smaller Installer: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:D3237CF2CA60BED721F0942BC56E15DE9BAE1572 or try Russian Roulette on the beta links in signature. June 14, 2017 Update AV download/update URL for Pro Hide tabs for "My Pro Account" page Warn user before attempting to launch files with masked extensions
  8. Red seeding is usually caused by 1 or more trackers not working or being offline. Delete the ones that are bad, and seeding will turn blue. If you're using DHT, you can actually delete all public trackers.
  9. Dunno. They're always mentioned as a reason to update, but not (really) specified. I'd love to see a comprehensive, detailed list...
  10. Everything you're asking is available in µTorrent's user manual (press F1, or Help>µTorrent Help), you know? You can find it under Appendix B: Advanced Information. Here's an online version: http://www.netcheif.com/Articles/uTorrent/html/AppendixB_04.html
  11. Until your Speed test shows higher than the current 2Mbps, you wont achieve a faster speed. According to your ISP, what is your broadband connection speed supposed to be?
  12. That's about right for your download speed then as 2Mbps = 250Kbps. Mbps to Kbps converter: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Mbps+to+Kbps
  13. Try this: Press F7 key, That should bring up the sidebar. Then click on "Torrents".
  14. You should set your limits under Options>Preferences>Bandwidth. Then Apply>OK.
  15. Maybe something on this very similar problem will help: https://forum.utorrent.com/topic/106006-cant-activate-ad-free-license/
