      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.

3.5.x Beta

Hi -

Just wanted to report a bug on latest uT version (Build 43580/x32 bit Windows).

The functionality relating to marking files within a torrent to be downloaded/skipped seems to be completely broken in new release (has always worked well in the past).

If I mark all files to 'don't download' and then re-enable some of them via the Priority menu it basically ignores my selections and downloads a different set of files to what was selected. I've tried stopping/starting torrent and this doesn't help.

As per included screenshot - the 'priority' column is correctly showing what selections I made - however the %/Done/etc columns show that the 'skipped' files are being downloaded anyhow (and other files marked as 'normal' aren't being downloaded).

I hope this can be fixed ASAP - not sure if I need to downgrade to old release now.

thanks

CM

Can you be more specific, and describe - when exactly you have skipped/selected files - before starting to download at all? What was the torrent state when you did - stopped? Your PC-OS? What was the previous versions you've used where this was OK? Is that specific to this one torrent or happen to all?

A link to this torrent can help, maybe you settings file too.

Hi - I pause the torrent immediately after it registers (while it's still searching for peers but file list is available) + then go and do 'Don't download' on the files I don't want (at this point 0% downloaded) - and then go and start the torrent again from uTorrent. This problem has happened on every torrent I've tried to do this with since getting the new update (noticed it maybe 5 times) - so it's definitely not specific to a particular torrent.

It's definitely only being happening with latest uTorrent build 43580 x32 (running on Windows 10 64 bit) - I do this quite often for packs where I need to only grab some files - never remember it not working before now.

The torrent site is private so I can't post the link here.

Try to set  your properties->UI->Don't start download automatically (so you don't need to stop+restart). Make sure "use partfile" is selected. Does it happen with this as well?
