      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.

Not Downloading Torrents

Good Morning,


I have used utorrent for years now & have never seemed to have a problem until a short time ago..

I say a month back. I thought it may have been just a corrupt file or bad seed, nut then started noticing error codes on uploads on relied sources i have used for years.

AFG, mSD, EVO, MeGusta, FUM. Just to say a few. I have been with Torrentday since August 2008. Before that I was one of the first with Mininova before it got shut down.

I've been around the game a long time..

Weird thing is this though..  On different files, Formats & Sources utorrent keeps coming up with an **UNKNOWN error** & does not let me DL the file i require. Im mostly film & TV series sort of guy yet utorrent after many years now seems to be failing me?

I have not tried other torrent clients as I believe in loyalty & security in what I trust. Yet it seems utorrent has become lacking in regards to picking up these anomalies.

This is been going on now for over a Month yet no reports or fixes have arrived. I have now DL'ed your beta version & this still seems to persist. I cant send any reports via *Hijackthis* as this does not show the problem?

Do you see what I'm getting at.

I've contacted TD & everything on their end is secure. the problem now lies with utor. I don't with to change providers, yet if this persists. I might have to.


Hopefully you can look into this for me & even try & give it a go with random files on both 43388 & the Beta versions of utor as it just doesn't wasn't want to DL files?


Many thanks for your time & hope to hear from you soon.

PM me a torrent or 2 you're having problems with (the magnet links, preferably) and I'll see if they download here.
