      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. Eh... It's a work-around. But it's a little counter-intuitive. Thanks for your help.
  2. Hello, μTorrent has a really nice option under the General Settings to start the program minimized to the taskbar. IMO it would be even better if we had a second option to start the program minimized to the system tray, running only in the background. That doesn't sound like too difficult of a change. Could someone tell me where the source code is? I might take a look at it myself. Thanks.
