    I originally saw this at WB so I thought I would pass it along.

    For now a temporary ban has been place on these clients as news from some of the users with security issues including the MPAA and RIAA. They are the most stable but issues with security is more important for the users, and the site. You guys got till friday to switch after that we will kill the rights to those that still decided to use it.

    The versions will include 1.7, 1.71 and all betas, and any new utorrent

    Its best to stick with 1.6 and 1.61 for now till the issue is resolved. Older utorrent before 1.6 is not suggested also, as those we also plan to ban

    This was decided for your safety and ours.

    link to utorrent 1.6 and 1.6.1

    http://download.utorrent.com/1.6/utorrent.exe
    http://download.utorrent.com/1.6.1/utorrent.exe


    I have read a little more elsewhere at utorrent.com in the forums where they discuss the new versions and the "extra" data being sent out.
    You can check that HERE

    For your own piece of mind, I would recommend checking your other trackers for any issues.

    1.7.1 blows, indeed.

    Constantly telling me that trackers are offline when they aren't. The bad thing is that these trackers can't get on the same page. One tracker bans 1.6.1 and another bans 1.7+.

    Can't win for losing.

    The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.

    It looks like that thing about sending your data to anti piracy organisation is false.

    1.7 utoorent has some problems so it is good idea to stay with 1.6.1 version.. for some time later 1.7 version i think will be better than version 1.6.1..

    I dont fix what aint broke. I am perfectly happy with 1.6 for now and with this 1.7 scandal that is being talked about everywhere but really not proven positively or negatively there is no reason for me to try it
