Seems I set the global speed limit to 3/8ths, then I unchecked uTP from the limit. I'm still using 3.3.16

Windows / Re: Network Interface Crashing VPNs

Article on TorrentFreak, mentioning that BitTorrent and uTorrent DNS binding (Network Interface) have been hacked.

The same with Transmission.

I filed a topic months ago and qBittorrent replied not their problem.

There has been article about Transmission being hacked throught the DNS binding area of their torrent program.

Yesterday, I read an article on TorrentFreak, the same is happening with BitTorrent and uTorrent.

There is a programming flaw in the DNS binding (Network Interface) where hackers (crackers) can break into all three clients.

I am wondering if this has been happening to qBittorrent for the last several months.

See if limiting TCP downloads in the settings works for you.

I'm not sure how to do that as I don't see anything specific to TCP settings alone?

P.S. I see this post has 990 views! So it must be a fairly common issue.

My question is if it is within reason. I seed hundreds of popular linux ISOs on a dedicated fiber connection with SSDs and sometimes I see the upload drop as low as 30KiB/s for hours at a time. The monthly average is a pretty constant 15Mb/s, but at any given time it can be anywhere from 30KiB/s to 15MiB/s

Some Linux seeders have horrendous bufferbloat and TCP will effectively DOS you with resends. I used wireshark to figure out why I was seeing high packet loss while downloading come Linux torrents myself. Turned out that some subset of the seeders had latencies up in 3,000ms rang. TCP assumed the packets were lost, but really they were just greatly delayed. Most TCP stacks do not rate limit resends. Nearly 50% of all of the packets I was recieving where duplicates.

My work around was to limit TCP transfer to 3/8th of my bandwidth. Even if 50% of the packets are dups, that would only be 6/8ths. uTP does not have this issue as it is latency sensitive.

Probably a bug.

Also, definitely aggravated by having lots of connections and half open connections active at once.

The VPN could even be an issue, if it's not a lot faster than 15 mbit/sec.
