      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.

Many seeds, low speed?

4 posts in this topic

Hello, I have attached image of my downloading torrent and it is very weird that my speed doesn't really go above 140 kb/s. Also as you can see in the image I have lots of seeds, but it downloads only from some of them, and still, never a lot. I was wondering why? Do you also have this problem? If I'm lucky, sometimes a new seed can come from whom I will get a few megabytes per second and then speed is good, but why it's not like that with all seeds?

I didn't change any settings, those are pretty much default torrent settings

Speeds are bandwidth dependent and how many seeders they are and since your cropped screen shot shows no seeders to compare how would you expect anyone looking to know what is happening? More details are needed if one wants any help. And what are you settings?  So there are alot of missing parts here for anyone else reading to know where to look for help.

What do you mean it shows no seeders to compare? Aren't all these people seeders?

Where is the complete unedited tabs that show "Seeds and Peers". Not showing enough information will make it harder if you really want others reading to give you more help not from me but others reading this.
