      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. I'm proposing to back up the settings.dat and rss.dat files. Would those two files cover the following items: uTorrent Settings RSS Feeds RSS Downloader Settings RSS Downloader Status (i.e. which shows have already been downloaded)
  2. The Help Centre article on backing up uTorrent settings indicates that you should back up the entire %AppData%\uTorrent folder. All I care about is: uTorrent Settings, RSS Feeds, RSS Downloader Settings, RSS Downloader Status (i.e. which shows have already been downloaded). Given that, can I simply back up the rss.dat and settings.dat files?
  3. I have a few RSS feeds that won't download automatically no matter what settings I use. An example of one such feed is below. The feed populates fine in uTorrent (i.e. the episodes appear when I click the feed under the "Feeds" section) but they won't download automatically. Any suggestions on what I might try to get them to download? http://extratorrent.cc/rss.xml?type=search&cid=8&search=colbert+720p
  4. Determined that the issue was indeed with Socks5 proxy - reached out to my provider and they're having some known issues atm. Thanks for the hint DreadWingKnight!
  5. The issue seems to have resolved itself. I'm able to connect again as of this morning.
  6. Thanks for the reply DreadWingKnight. Yes, I'm using a Socks5 proxy. That isn't new though - I've been using the proxy for quite a while now.
  7. Are there any known issues with uTorrent Remote (https://remote.utorrent.com) currently? I haven't made any changes to uTorrent but, as of this weekend, I'm not able to connect - it keeps displaying a "400: Client is not connected" message. I tried rebooting the computer running uTorrent and made sure that uTorrent was running but I'm still not able to connect. If there's anything else I can try to determine what the issue is, I'm happy to do that.
  8. It would be great if the RSS feeds were sorted alphabetically (or could be manually sorted via dragging similar to RSS Downloader entries). I've read a number of posts saying that some people do this by editing the rss.dat file using BEncode but it would be easier if this could be done through the GUI. For example, my RSS feed list has ~30 entries and I add new ones on a regular basis so not having them sorted makes it difficult to quickly find a particular feed and editing using BEncode would mean that I'd have to do that every time I added a new entry.
  9. @IRainman I agree - it is a pain that double clicking within uTorrent isn't working. Hopefully it will be fixed in an upcoming release. If by "web-ui," you mean the settings that can be enabled under Advanced-->Web UI, you may want to try uTorrent Remote as well (under "Remote" in the settings). I was using the web-ui for a while but found uTorrent Remote to be easier as it didn't require me to know my IP address and/or maintain a dynamic DNS service. Whenever I want to access the remote, I just go to remote.utorrent.com. There's also an Android app for uTorrent Remote as well which comes in hand.
  10. I'm using 3.4.9 and the problem still exists there as well. The only workaround that I've found is to use uTorrent Remote to access RSS feeds. @IRainman: You may want to try uTorrent Remote as a workaround until the problem is fixed - not the best solution but it should at least allows you to download stuff from your RSS feeds.
  11. I have one RSS downloader that isn't working. The rest of them work fine - it's just this one that refuses to download any content. A screenshot of the downloader settings is attached. The RSS feed that provides the source for the downloader works fine as well and I can even double click shows in the RSS feed and have them start downloading - it's only the auto downloading that doesn't work. So far, I've tried: deleting and recreating the downloader deleting and recreating both the RSS feed and the downloader Does anyone have any suggestions as to why it might not be working or further troubleshooting steps that I might take?
  12. Thanks for the reply DreadWingKnight. I'm not 100% sure I understand what you mean by "direct linking of torrents" but I pretty sure nothing has changed with the feeds. I have about 30 of them and they're all exhibiting the same behaviour. I can also double click fine when I use uTorrent Remote (remote.utorrent.com) - the hanging only occurs when I double click one of the torrents within the uTorrent UI.
  13. Whenever I double click a torrent in an RSS feed, uTorrent hangs. I've included a screenshot showing what I mean. Is there anything I can do to try to determine why? It's uTorrent 3.4.9 on Windows 7 x64 if that makes an difference. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling uTorrent and that didn't help.
