Recently, a vulnerability was found in uTorrent that allows any visited website to exfiltrate sensitive information from a user's running instance of uTorrent. Anyone using a vulnerable version of uTorrent puts the entire userbase of any private tracker they are on in danger, as any malicious actor can use the vulnerability to impersonate the affected user and convince the tracker to send back IP addresses of other members of the tracker.
While we know many of our users choose uTorrent as their client of choice here, leaving it on the whitelist poses an unacceptable threat to the safety of our userbase, and it would be extremely irresponsible for us to allow its continued use. I mean really - what kind of horrible staff would we be if we put a minor convenience of a portion of our users above the safety of everyone? What competent group of staff would do something like that?
We originally expected that a vulnerability would never be found for uTorrent ever, but it turns out that...
Request Section and enforcement of filling requests:
I decided to go through the Request Section that is located at the bottom of the Home page.

So Here is my list of what I plan on filling for member’s request. I ask that the other member’s that have made the effort to say they will fill a request do so. Other members should go through and see what they can fill also. The Shoutbox is for communication and it is not for filling requests. From this...
Külföldi torrent oldalak BakaBT | BBT BakaBT News - BitTorrent and uTorrent clients suffer security vulnerabilityFollowing the reports of major security flaws discovered in newer and older builds of uTorrent and Bittorrent that allows outsiders to gain control over your computer all windows versions of uT and Bittorrent have been removed from our whitelist.
More on this issue can be found here.
It may be possible to mitigate this bug by disabling net discoverability in uTorrent versions 2.2.1 and earlier as shown in this image
But it is not confirmed, and probably won't be, if this solves this vulnerability.
Currently the only certain way to mitigate this bug is to not use uTorrent or Bittorrent versions altogether and move to safer clients such as Tixati, BiglyBT, qBittorrent, Deluge and other open source projects.
Similar bug has been reported to affect users of Transmission, but a patch has been published according to TorrentFreak....
