      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.

Rechecking Files after reboot?

3 posts in this topic

I'm on uTorrnetPro 3.5 (42804).    When I notice that uTorrent has some files that won't seed; I to a File-> Exit or just hit the "X" in the upper right corner; then I do a proper Shutdown.

When I reboot and restart uTorrent; somewhere in-between 200-600 files queue up to "recheck" and frequently I'm missing like 100K to 2M of any given file. (most re-check just fine as 100% complete)  Of these 200-600 files; none were downloading at the time of shut down and were 100% complete.

Its a i5v4 Proc; 16GB RAM; uTorrent is installed on the Boot drive; and the share drive is on a RAID enclosure. CHKDSK and other utilities don't find any errors on the RAID drive;   From reading the forum's uTorrent seemingly isn't writing its save/resume file correctly.    

What can I check/do/etc to prevent this from repeatedly occurring.  

As a side note - is there a practical limit to how much uTorrent can share/load? (Reason I ask is it take around 5 minutes before uTorrent loads after reboot before it starts rechecking the files)

ITs a Mediasonic HFR2-SU3S2 attached via USB 3.0.  Would attaching it eSATA make a difference?  There are 4 x 8TB drives in R5.  Approximately 5000 seeded files at around 18TB capacity; Windows 10 Pro;

After closing uTorrent is there a way to check/confirm that the save/resume file has been properly written/closed?    

As uTorrent is doing a re-check of the files now; some were completed in the past day; some are as old as 2 months;  Some of them are small (100MB) some of the files are insanely large (100GB)
