      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.

Status: Not accessible

3 posts in this topic

I'm using UT 3.4.9 beta (build 43223) [32-bit] on Windows 10

For many months now, whenever I try and enable uTorrent Remote Access in the app I simply get "Status: Not accessible" and it goes into a loop of delay and re-trying.

No connection issues reported in UT client itself (green tick bottom right corner in status bar).

Does Remote work in the beta builds?

if so, what can I check or troubleshooting can I do to try and determine the issue?

Thanks in advance.

Are you using a proxy?

Yes - Adguard

I disabled it and was able to successfully register and connect remotely.

Re-enabled Adguard and put in an exclusion to not filter utorrent.exe and it seems to still be stable.

Many thanks! Perhaps this should be documented or even mentioned in the uTorrent -> Preferences -> Remote setup page?
