      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.

What's happening with the 1.8.7 build numbers

2 posts in this topic

Could you please fix the OS X / macOS build system ?

The latest October 22 release of 1.8.7, so that's 42731, still contains 42417 from July 2016. The name of the .dmg file suggests a new version.

However, when you install you get build 42417 again. Also happened with the previous release from September. If you look inside the .dmg file
you can clearly see the files are from July.
