    GOT THIS WARNING PM ABOUT UT FROM ANOTHER SITE TODAY

    in the last few days vulnerabilities were found in old and new versions of uTorrent.

    Older uTorrent versions 2.0.4 and 2.2.1 are not affected in the same way as uTorrent versions 3.x. If you have uTorrent 2.2.1 or 2.0.4 all you have to do is disable the Web UI (if it is enabled) and change the advanced setting "net.discoverable" to false.

    If you use uTorrent version 3.x please update to the latest version of uTorrent, 3.5.3 (it fixes the vulnerabilities; this is a beta version) or downgrade to an older and allowed version of uTorrent (2.2.1 or 2.0.4).

    When uTorrent version 3.5.3 is no longer a beta version (or even faster if we feel the need to) we will remove all older uTorrent 3.x versions from our whitelist. Older 2.2.1 and 2.0.4 uTorrent versions will remain on the whitelist but please make sure you protect yourself and have the correct settings in your utorrent client. As always we encourage our members to keep themselves informed and updated on all potential security threats from all areas of the Internet

    Hi, I use this; product name uTorrent 1.6.1
    file version 1.6.1.0
    copyrighted by Ludvig Strigeus
    size 646 KB...,
    and others before the 2's like "uTorrent (2.2.1 or 2.0.4)" etc... and I've never had any troubles
    at all. What's the difference with the new one's out in today's world other than corporate B.S.?

    Maybe some new options added... If you are quite satisfied with the version you have and you don't need anything else - stay with that version... If it's working - don't try to fix it :)

    You are correct, I'm quite satisfied, and I feel that when I download books, movies, apps and other stuff, that I'm getting what I asked for. I or any one don't want those things which can and will KILL the machines we work and play on... our computers. File-sharing is the name right?
    thank you, for your wisdom...

    Thank you - I'm not Gandalf the wise! ;)
    People here are looking for the latest version - without knowing what are the differences... - Old version is quite good for most users... but there is consumer mentality.... :(

    I've heard about this but haven't seen one infected yet. Tread carefully if you use UTorrent!
