Rob8UrChips Posted December 19, 2008 Report Share Posted December 19, 2008 Hi, I still use uTorrent 1.7.7 on Vista Home Premium x32 and this morning I noticed a disturbing anomaly in the Peer list of a torrent using public trackers.As you will know uTorrent allows you to show either the IP address or to "Resolve IP's" in the list of Peers.Because I like the little flags I have mine set to Resolve IP's. However, one of the peers had no flag (which isn't unusual) but instead of the usual Resolved IP it had my Computer Name only and exactly as I have it typed (eg aLLcaPs) in my computer.This peer was apparently using uTorrent 1.8.1 but what I'm concerned about is1. how they got my exact Computer Name2. how they got my exact Computer Name to show in the Resolved IP list3. do I have anything to worry about?4. how in blazes did they manage to do that?and,5. The torrent was seeding after being 100% d/l, so I immediately stopped it and removed it from uTorrent, but should I maybe delete the .torrent too?I'm all scared now, should I be?Thanks guys,Rob Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
