Malware report sent to google for uTorrent installer


Recommended Posts



uTorrent aggressively changed my default search engine and home page during install.  Sleazy tactic which I "clicked through" and had no opportunity to fix.  I reported this to google on stopbadware.org and I have received a response that indicates action will be taken.


My hope is that utorrent will correct this behavior and remove this function from the program. If not, I hope to have utorrent (all platforms) removed from all search results for "torrent" "client" and related keywords.


If I may editorialize: It's unbelievably greedy, lazy, and impolite to resort to such tactics.  Please be more creative and less selfish in your quest to extract revenue from us.
