This, and a lot of other things concerning ĀµTorrent/BitTorrent just prove that changing to qBittorrent was the best thing I did so far.

- But -
The article states, that it only affects ĀµTorrent (thus BitTorrent too, as they are built from the same scratch).
What about libtorrent, and all other clients out there, like Tixati?


Nevertheless, it shows a perfect example for not downloading copyrighted stuff illegally. If this "peer-attack" comes from anti-piracy groups, their mission probably was successful.
