Users of uTorrent and the official BitTorrent client will want to upgrade to the latest version ASAP because of a recently discovered security vulnerability. It’s been discovered that uTorrent 1.7.5 (build 4602), uTorrent 1.8 (alpha 7834) and BitTorrent 6.0 (build 5535) are all vulnerable to a remote denial of service attack; code execution is rumored to be possible, too.
Most of the private trackers I’m on have given users of uTorrent a few days to upgrade to the latest safe build (1.7.6, build 7859. found here) before being cut off.
So yeah, upgrade now.
