      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.

That is not happening for me using 3.5.0.43784 beta.

Example:

Torrent contains 38 files.

Deselect all but one.

File start downloading. Priority "normal". Others "skip".

Right-click on downloading torrent>Pause.

Click Start icon. Just the selected file downloads. All others are still "skip" priority and don't download.

What is the priority of files which shouldn't be downloading?

It happens only when you  pause a torrent and exit and start utorrent it starts downloading skipped files .This bug has been reported earlier also

For me, even after pausing the torrent, exiting uTorrent then launching uTorrent:

I note that the torrent remains Paused.

Clicking on the Start icon, only the selected files continue to download.

The rest of the files have skip priority and do not download. I tested using a 1GB torrent with 59 files.

Using 3.5.0.43804 this time.

After saying that, you previously said on May 11, "Running as administrator solved the problem".

Hmmm, now this is bizarre. What I previously said appears to now not work. A single file DID download after starting the paused torrent.

But I was just about to upload my settings when I tested again just to make sure it would work as I had said.

No matter what, the files showing "skip" priority are downloading now i.e. the whole torrent. (Only when you Stop then Start torrent, the single file downloads on it own as it should).

I must've had 2 glitches. Strange...
