uTorrent has trojan?

Recommended Posts

Mainly a false positive.

Some AV softwares need an update for their signatures to repair that, so it's not utorrents foul.

Just search the forums for "false positive" and you'll find some examples for that.

I'm using Avira and had that problem (twice up to now) too.

Assuming you've downloaded from a trusted source (read: utorrent.com), and your computer isn't already infected (in which case, who knows -- any already-present malware can infect newly downloaded executables if they wanted).
