[BT] uTorrent PUA

I'm reading on more than a few security boards that some recent builds of uTorrent are flagging as potentially unwanted app or potentially unwanted application.

Those that P2P should be wary of this.

Thanks for the news, but as far as I'm concerned, any version of uTorrent after 2.2.1 is an unwanted app.

You're welcome for the news.

Still using uTorrent 2.2.1 myself.

Bloatware isn't always better.

I switched from utorrent to qBittorrent and like it very much.

Any reason why you decided to switch Torrent clients ? Bloat or other ?

They added some nagware to it. A featured torrent space bar(nagware) w/ no way to disable.

qbittorent has performed flawlessly for me since I started using it.

While I hate to slam the nice folks at uTorrent - there has and is an ongoing problem with bloat:
