      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.

I upgraded the version about a month ago and now when I try to download torrents it just says connecting to peers, but never starts so ...

So there was a Yellow Triangle with an exclamation point in the bottom right hand corner. I clicked on it for utorrent setup guide. I ran the test to see what the problem was/is and this is what it tells me.

Under Bandwith is has a big red X and says

Connection Failed error: A request to send or receive data was disallowed because the socket in not connected and (when sending on a datagram using a send to call) no address was

Then it cuts off where is says Your upload speed which is currently set to unlimited

Under the network box it's checked and has a Green CHECK, saying

Port is open and network is configured properly.

So I am still at a lose here
