      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.

How to identify torrents no one downloads anymore

6 posts in this topic

My 3tb drive is almost full. I've got movies still seeding on there from years ago. I can either order and install another drive, or get rid of a bunch a crap.. but won't be able to seed them anymore obviously  

Is there a way to identify if anyone is still downloading stuff? Like "no activity in 3 months" or something.

Showing the "Last Active" column might be helpful to you.

Right-click on the highlighted Yellow area and select "Last Active" from the list:

If that doesn't help, you'd have to keep your eye on each individual torrent's Uploaded or Share Ratio values (visible via the Info tab as well as selecting those columns on highlighted Yellow area), then check them again at a later date to see if values have increased or not.

Different sites have different criteria. Some show Torrent Health which gives you idea, some shows seeders and leechers ratio which also give you an idea about it.

We don't help find torrents that is up to you to do and find yourself.

That did it, thanks! Cleared off 200gb of inactive torrents!
