      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.

Announcing The New µTorrent Server for Linux

31 posts in this topic

Engineering has new versions built and tested for Ubuntu 12.04 and 13.04, and Debian 6 and 7.  We are waiting on the deployment folks to make these available for download from the web site.

Maybe they could post a torrent more quickly :-)

Yesterday I downloaded and installed the server on Ubuntu 12.04 in my 32-bit netbook. Works just fine. However, after shutting down Firefox and rebooting my system, all the files I was downloading had disappeared. What's the good of that?

 

I normally use Transmission for downloading bit torrents in Linux but I've been using uTorrent client on Windows for years and I like it. Both Transmission and uTorrent (Windows) "remember" the activity at shutdown and restart it when the client is restarted. I would rather use a client in Ubuntu, not a server (although I don't understand the difference other than the Linux app runs in a browser. Why?).

Interesting, must be the 32 bit libc6 libraries are compatible or something. I'm running 64 bit and 12.04 only contains libc6 2.15. Unless you did a dist-upgrade and you are not really running 12.04 anymore?

We are still waiting on the deployment folks to post the new versions to the web site.  We set up a system that should help them with this, and they have the new archives of the product; this task must be competing with their other responsibilities.  I apologize for the wait.
