      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.

I've got problem with my files that i download with my torrents - i can't open them. There is always that error. 

"a required privilege is not held by the client"

That pop-up started showing up when i downloaded my AV, but I've got this problem only with files that i get from torrent.

I have Windows 8.1

Torrent version 3.5 (build 43580)

Does the problem persist if you temporarily uninstall kaspersky?

Yes, i uninstalled Kaspersky, reinstalled Torrent and redownload the file - still the same issue.

Then it means the torrent file itself has some problem and nothing utorrent can do about it.

Anytime I see this it's the file itself of the location your getting from that is the cause of the problem or your A/V as mentioned has corrupted a Sys file or possible you got a virus through the torrent you downloaded that is using this line to prevent you from seeing what it is doing. In all my times of torrents anytime I get a message like that I look to see if the file wasn't corrupted or has a malware embedded into it. If this didn't happen before but just started happening then I would suspect where the torrents are as the likely culprit. But since Kapersky is undetermined then a clean restore and reinstall is the only way to know where the problem is coming from.
