      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.

End-of-life notification for Power PCs

1 post in this topic

Beginning with version 1.7 of BitTorrent, we will no longer support Power PC users. This is in line with Apple’s own end-of-life for Power PC users, and allows us to spend our time pursuing features and technologies that are catered to newer Intel-based Mac versions.

Given this upcoming end-of-life, we have aimed to make our Power PC users happy by including all possible fixes and improvements in our new 1.6 release which is available on our site now. Power PC users on version 1.6 will not receive update notifications to newer versions of BitTorrent. To get new versions of BitTorrent, please update to an Intel-based version of Mac.

Thank you for understanding!
