      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.

uTorrent stops my internet!

5 posts in this topic

the past month or so my internet stops working when I download, uTorrent will download torrents for about 5-10 minutes, reaching speeds up to 4mb/s as I'm with Sky fibre optic then my internet stops working completely, I have to press the reset button on my router. I've googled solutions and nothing works, I've tried changing "global maximum number of connections" from 200 to 100, didn't work, unticked "enable bandwidth management uTP", didn't work, please help!

Sounds like ISP throttle is what it sounds like does it go back to normal when you stop using utorrent in normal web browsing?

DreadWingKnight nothing changed leading up to this :(

PiusX from what ive read on the internet I think it is ISP throttle but I don't know how to stop this. If I close utorrent I can use my web browser, unless whilst using utorrent it was killed my internet, then I have to reset modem

I think resetting your modem is hiding the real problem that it isn't the modem but your ISP that is the cause of it. Unfortunately such discussion will not be allowed here by the Rules and you will have to talk to your ISP about what your options are?
