Thread: uTorrent Provacy issue

  1. #1

    Urgent

    Hello

    Is there 'really' any privacy issue associated with uTorrent ver 1.7 and beyond? I have read in some forums that after being sold to BitTorrent, uTorrent later versions (after 1.6) can be used to spy on the downloads and uploads of the peer. All these are really true or just rumors by privacy paranoids?

    Thank you.

    Are you cent percent sure? Then why some trackers block uTorrent 1.7 onwards?

    I you are worried you can always go back to an earlier version from filehippo. I myself have went back to 1.6 just in case, a little paranoia never hurt imo

    if you don't need to use a newer version there is no reason to. stick with the 1.6/.1 series.

    there's no "spying" - well at least it hasn't been proven

    i personally don't use it coz i don't like what its become and who its affiliated with

    Is there any real functional changes in the Newer 1.7 series that the 1.6/1.6.1 do not have?

    I think that I shall revert back, but not sure exactly which one I should revert to. There are so many Build numbers, it is little confusing. :?:
