      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. How can it be dead if he's downloading at 1007.1kB/s?
  2. PM me a magnet link to a torrent you're having problems with. I'll check.
  3. I've mentioned this to that user more than once. The user doesn't understand.
  4. These are the default colours I see: Try editing the current.btskin file if you have that in your uTorrent data folder.
  5. With Magnet links, the only thing that might increase is: 1) Downloading of the actual torrent data 2) Connections to people sharing the torrent I now routinely check for, & subsequently remove, any trackers before downloading starts.
  6. Also bear in mind that the people behind SPAM use automated systems to generate (guess) email addresses. Using "utorrent" isn't unique at all as it is a dictionary word. It's no more unique than using utorrent1@, utorrent2@ or bittorrent@, bittorrent2@ etc. To truly be sure when a company sells or passes on an email, make sure to use a really unique email like "ULXNBVnn7Zml@...".
  7. Can you private message me the Magnet link? (Right-click on the torrent>Copy Magnet URI, then right-click>paste). I'd like to try.
  8. By default, it's been blue since version at least version 2.2.1.xxxxx. i.e. Done/100% (or Status/Seeding in later versions), Downloaded & Availability.
  9. *delete this*
  10. By the way, there is no 64-bit version.
  11. You were fortunate the site pointed back to uTorrent. But as uTorrent have their own site, there's no need to visit any 3rd party site to download uTorrent And that goes for other software, too.
  12. Luckily the links, on Neowin, directly link back to uTorrent's download page, uTorrent's website and the uTorrent Pro purchase page.
  13. Bottom centre of uTorrent interface, Is "DHT: waiting to log in"? Looking at your screen shot, I found 2 [ettv] torrents: "The.Flash..." & "Supergirl..." and they work fine here.
  14. µTorrent stable released: Magnet: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:01B0EC789A9ADD3CDC2888A5104FF8164B9592DA or Try Russian Roulette on one of the stable links in signature.
