      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. that is quite surprising, but it should not be like this.
  2. As far as I know, there is no limit to the max number of torrents existing in the client. You can download as much as you can.
  3. Ok so that is the difference you are making out. Now i think things are getting clearer.
  4. Hey, thanks for clearing it out, i honestly did not know about it. Ok i ll do the thing with Slackware. But tell me how is it different from speed test ookla?
  5. Why does my connection drop whenever i do a torrent download for movies. My ISP is providing me 50MB download speed. I think there is no issue with the ISP and have also conducted the speed test. Other things i can download easily but facing issues with torrent. I use windows 8 and also use a security software bit-defender.
  6. Hello everyone, I am new to torrenting and i think i am more convenient using it on my android device. I just would like to know if someone can guide me through how to use it on my device. I have never done so before.
  7. You should be asking the support for this, but i would agree with you the ads coming up constantly really pisses off.
  8. Oh it's completely alright, we are humans and we make mistakes. No one is perfect.
  9. Thanks for the suggestion.
  10. I am not sure enough if this is possible, but i guess this would be a great thing if it is done. Best of luck.
  11. So do you suggest getting a good internet security software if it is required to get this issue resolved?
  12. Hello all, i am having issues of slow internet connection when i use torrent. So, here it is, i have switched to utorrent i sometime have very slow internet. Moreover, when i am downloading using a torrent client at 20 kbps, the router keeps blinking as if it is working completely fine. But the internet is slow. Also. note that on a website i go to and on my gmail notifier i get the error message " connection was reset". Please help.
  13. Thanks for the update.
  14. Makes sense, so what have you used now? as what i recommended was on the basis what i got to know from a friend who is more into this. I can update him as well with your suggestions.
  15. Check your Folder store.torrents in they should be there. Hopefully won't have to download the removed torrents again. Good luck
