      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.

  9. Hello. 3 questions about that: 1/ How will the users be able to edit hundred resume.dat files if they need to migrate %appdata%\utorrent to another computer or change the drive letter which has changed? (it's a frequent question on the board) Will they have to edit 200 or 300 files with BEncode Editor? We need an en-masse editor of resume.dat folder. 2/ What about the perfs? Are you sure saving the torrent list into hundred files doesn't imply a disk fragmentation that will slow the application during starting/deleting a batch of torrents? 3/ Honestly, why do you not use a SQLite database file as Firefox does to store its history, cookies, bookmarks etc? Firefox is able to manage a single SQLite file with a size of 40 or 70 MB.
  10. µT is not faulty. See http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=60615 And post HIjackthis log, but not into the main thread about µT 3.0, use the link I gave.
  11. Auto-update is enabled only after few days/weeks after a new release (to fix remaining bugs). Explained many times.
  12. Read the 1st post, it's explained: So ask tracker teams to allow this client.
  13. @p1r473: did you apply the speed limits to uTP connections too?

  15. Update manually, you just need to replace the old exe by the new one. And be sure your firewall (and PeerBlock included) doesn't block the communicaton between your client and µT servers when you're requesting the update.
