      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.

Rescan missing files, but without re-hash?

3 posts in this topic

Is it possible to do a rescan of a torrent's downloaded files to remove missing files from the torrent's download state, but without rehashing the present files?

With multi-file torrents, in many cases I download some of the files but not all (marking files as "don't download"), delete one or more of what I downloaded, then proceed to download more files.

The problem with "force re-check" is that it rehashes, which is a slow operation when it involves gigabytes of data.

All I do is delete files, so there's just a need to scan for file presence, not rehash.
