Daily reminder that even a 5 year old version of uTorrent blows the everliving fuck out of every freetard torrent client and that freetards are so buttblasted that uTorrent is still popular as fuck that they take every opportunity to badmouth uTorrent.
Meanwhile, 95% of the torrent community uses uTorrent while the remaining 5% of the torrent community use broke-as-fuck freetard clients because they are literal hipsters who want to feel like special little snowflakes.
Don't let the freetards pollute your mind with their propaganda, uTorrent users. Remember that you use the best fucking torrent client in the world and that freetard shills are stuck with their inferior clients and only want to bring you down to their pleb level.
I am proud to be a uTorrent 2.2.1 user.

I'm starting to think utorrent 2.2.1 shills are just some kind of forced meme. If you unironically use utorrent, any utorrent, you should have in your /g/ card and kill yourself.
>linking the old version and not one of the 2 most recent builds who's only difference is the ad shown in the installer if you actaully use that

Even if that is meant to imply every version since the very beginning is affected, they should mention that somewhere.
Into the trash it goes.
I've been using qBittorrent for years and I've never had any of these problems. What's wrong with you, OP?
It was all versions you retard.
This has been exploitable since 2014, 2-0-1-4! How many more exploits have yet to be disclosed?
Enjoy your depreciated software anon.
>Doesn't read posts thoroughly
>Calls other people retards
If it was all versions, they should state that much.
There is no reason to assume an exploit will be present in all major versions of software, especially if it was only discovered since well after the jump to 3.x.
A CVE listing that doesn't specifically mention what versions are affected is almost useless.

So we should keep patching software, even if it doesn't have the exploit because nobody bothered to fucking check?
Are you actually retarded or merely pretending?
Rarely updated closed source software has bugs, no fucking shit. It just would be nice to know exactly what versions (first and last) that are affected.
It is incredibly stupid to automatically assume every version ever of a particular program has the same bug discovered in one particular version.

What makes you think NTFS, released in 1993, can in any way be better than ext4 which released in 2006, 13 years later?
The only "upside" to NTFS is that it's not quite as bad as FAT* whilst still being compatible with both linux and windows, but this is only because MS is too fucking retarded to implement native ext4 support.
kek, i prefer by a wide margin to be called freetard or whatever you want than defending software that actively screws me, if you people didn't learn with the stealth bitcoin miner on top of all the other ugly shit then there's just no way of helping you.
My client works perfect, not had a single fucking issue because I'm not a bumbling tech troglodyte. Also;
>it's actively developed
>open sourced so no bitcoin miner or botnet included
>free to change anything about it I dislike
>nice, non-money grubbing devs
>All the features I need, and more to come.
I think you're talking to the wrong guy m80. Maybe you should take a deep breath, stop shaking and wipe away them teary eyes before trying again.
You people are literally cancer, go shill elsewhere.
>nobody bothered to fucking check
Lots of people have checked you autismo fuck, that's the whole fucking point. go fucking google if you can't comprehend and stop trying to make excuses for using your shitty depreciated software.
i don't have any of the problems op described, so i have an excellent torrent client without the disadvantages of using an old version of a program that i'll never update from developers i don't trust, what do you have?
qBT on GNU/Linux abd FreeBSD don't have those problems.
>I don't get you people sometimes, what's fun about a fucking file system update?
It's going to bring the kind of shit that zfs does to everyone's door by default. Support for RAID and bitrot protection already built in. And it includes a way to transition seamlessly from ext4 so it's painless. It's just not QUITE ready yet.
But if you don't want bitrot protection that's cool, stay with ext4 and don't get excited.
>Remote code exploits.
You may not care but i bet that this is not true for a lot of other people, you didn't negate it so enjoy your permanent vulnerabilities if you think the compromise worths it
>What matters is that it works unlike your libtorrent based garbage.
Except that it works though, that's why the compromise i previously describe doesn't worth for me, i keep my client updated while having the same benefits as you without the disadvantages
I can go to google and pick up isolated iprobelems for any software too anon!
Why don;t you screenshot your client and post the torrent you are having stalled issues with? C'mon then, we're waiting.
>closed no replies from op
>wintards can't figure out their network problems
>Lots of people have checked
So then why is it not mentioned in any of the CVE reports?
Have you actually googled it yourself? All any of them say is "software affected: bittorrent and utorrent", nothing more specific than that.
I'm waiting for you or anyone else to find a single source that specifies actual versions or builds that are affected, until then all we know is that *some* of them are and *some* of them are not.
>One or all of your search keywords were below 4 characters or you searched for words which are not allowed, such as 'html', 'img', etc, please increase the length of these search keywords or choose different keywords.

No thanks, I'll half my total download size (whilst being better quality) and be able to keep the media to rewatch whenever I like, with zero buffering, ad-free.
>people actually still use utorrent
>old version of it
what a disturbing realization
>Benefits such as STALLED and I/O errors.
As i said, i haven't experiences such problems.
>Keep being in denial that it never happens and shill here.
I didn't say that never happens but i has not happened to me, so my original statement holds, i retain all the advantages of using utorrent without any of the disadvantages
>Nobody is convinced bud ;)
>most people is disagreeing with op
Yeah, i can see it.
Seriously, every person can have a very different experience depending on their setup, so the only way of deciding who is telling the truth is by allowing people to test both programs by themselves, i'm pretty confident on my statement, so i'm not afraid of people testing both and let them decide by themselves.
>i-i'll ignore problems of new utorrent versions
>i-i'll ignore remote code exploits of old utorrent versions
>comment about other software being shit because of config errors
It literally tells you how to replicate it in the CVE, holy shit are you still in denial?
You could have tested it yourself if you didn't have such severe disabilities. How your mother decided to keep a child in your mental state is beyond me, I would have dropped you into a river or smothered you by now. it's inhumane.
Now you gave me the feels for bullying a disabled person, thanks anon, you cum-rag.
>typical damage control
So your logic is:
>users can never make any mistakes
>every problem a person has with any piece of software must always be blamed on the software without analyzing the actual reasons
>if someone dares otherwise it'll be always considered damage control?
>for shit softwre
oh yeah, except for software that is not shit, no, when software is not shit you can analyze every problem to determine if it's an user mistake or a bug in the software. The problem is, what is the definition of "shit software"? software you don't like?
So that's still zero sources then.
I know I can replicate it, you can replicate it, anyone can replicate it.
The point is, there is still no published list of affected versions.
What kind of NEET has the time to check every fucking build of a program to work out when a CVE became relevant?
Essentially what you're asking is for people who use utorrent to prove to themselves that it's got a horrific bug, rather than saving everyone the time by finding actual evidence.
What makes you think they are going to do that?
so in short:
>shit software is software i don't like
>but i'll not state reasons and i'll just try to discredit the people who makes that software using memes
>yeah, what could go wrong?
>Works on my machine!™ :^)
Not everything revolves around you.
Most of rural US has 3rd world internet, expecting everyone to stream is like expecting everyone to afford a house cleaner.
It's not the biggest luxury, but I think the people still living in mud huts might struggle.
>Essentially what you're asking is for people who use utorrent to prove to themselves that it's got a horrific bug
>who use utorrent
>What makes you think they are going to do that?
Ahm, not him but if i were in your situation i'd be worried about researching if the version of a piece of software i'm using is affected by an important known vulnerability to at least look for a way of mitigate it if i don't have any other option, because well, as you said, i'm directly affected just for running that software and logically i care for myself, just sayin'
But you're using logic, which as we've already established is not one of the habits of your average utorrent user.
Asking people to prove to themselves that their own mindset is wrong, strangely isnt as effective as just giving them concrete evidence in the first place.
Follow by continually shitposting that they're not shooting themselves in the foot as fast as fucking possible...
it's actually not friend, since i was the one who started forcing this meme.
i absolutely don't give a shit about xda, i'm not poor so i don't own a andropoverty device, never visited this place in my life and only heard the tales about indians making this place a hellhole.
After the whole >designated >shitting >streets meme rampage on /int/ i started calling windows shills with indian names (panjeet, pajeet, rajeesh, ranjeet, dikshit etc) and it sort of caught on.
nice memes you got there stranger
Let me elaborate this whole situation for you, someone made a very obvious troll post in a shit flinging thread, you're the only one who took the bait, I then proceed to call you name just to see how much of a thin skinned faggot you are, you're only amusing me by posting more replies.
Every fucking thread GNU/Linux is mentioned in someone posts this image. I'm getting teql fuckin' tired of your shit.
>hey man, not everyone live in your world
Did you reply to the wrong person? What you're saying is literally what I'm saying. People can think things like a brand new FS being fun. Not everyone lives in a world where FS are mundane shit, and some of them enjoy things.
Same goes to you.
>my interests are less fedora than your interest
It's not fedora, it's nerd. Use your memewords correctly. Being excited about a new FS is nerdy as fuck, but it's more kawaii than fedora. It's just passion.
Your rebuttal has no weight dumb linshit fanboy ;^)
>Use qBittorrent 3.2.x
>Works perfectly fine
>Upgrade to 3.3.x without changing any settings
I've pretty much just given up on libtorrent-based torrent clients. Nobody can make one that doesn't suck. I use Transmission with Remote GUI and it works perfectly fine.
>he doesn't just setup a seedbox with rtorrent+rutorrent
Step it the fuck up bitchnigger.
>paying for a seedbox
>not making one yourself out of an old piece of shit computer you have around
>>losing settings if you don't close it properly
This shit happened several times to me.
The only application ever that had this problem.
Why the hell would this happen from a technical POV? What's the reason for a programmer to do things this way?
That's simply false and you know it.
If a user is given an instruction manual and is told how to to properly configure the software, then disregards it and when they try to use the software it doesn't work as intended, who is at fault? The user.
>caring about "security holes" in a torrenting software
>software that literally gives out your ip to whoever it can
thinks an IP can mean anything or be used for anything
Well he revolves around himself so if it works on his machine then go fuck yourself cause he doesn't care about you.
I wish the uTorrent meme would die.
>uTorrent 2.2.1 is the best!
I see this everywhere, and it's the most retarded thing
What you meant to say was
>uTorrent 2.2.1 is the best uTorrent version
That doesn't mean much though, considering it's like 20 years old and has been left in the dust by more modern bittorrent clients. Just because it's the best version of uTorrent doesn't mean it's the best bittorrent. I felt like repeating that since you can't seem to be able to grasp it on your own for some reason.
I'm using qbittorrent and Vuze, q takes ages to open, has only 10 torrents, totalling 500 gb, while Vuze also takes ages to open and has about 1500 torrents totalling 3.8tb
Anyway, my plan was to replace Vuze with q, but preliminary tests suggest "no fucking way" as a proper course of action.
Also why is no one using Vuze? Works perfectly once you swich it to legacy UI. Never lost a torrent and it has 400 days of uptime with about 38 tb shared.
The only problem is java, you have to manually set the VM otherwise it craps itself with the default settings. Specially past the 400+ torrents)
nothing connects like uTorrent 2.2.1
nothing seeds like uTorrent 2.2.1
nothing is as light as uTorrent 2.2.1
nothing is as stable as uTorrent 2.2.1
Want to move/cross-seed a torrent? Other clients have a tendency to delete it. Not uTorrent 2.2.1.
Left in the dust? The rankings of torrent clients go:
I bet I've uploaded more in the last hour than you have all month.
I haven't had these problems, but I'm sitting on 3.2.5 until they are fixed (as I understand they should be in 3.3.2). 3.3 made some major changes. These are just teething problems.
If you don't immediately update every time a new version comes out, you can avoid a lot of these problems. If you're using any private trackers, you'll probably need to wait for new versions to be whitelisted, anyway. Similarly, if you're using the unofficial 64-bit version (as I am), there's usually enough of a lag for any major problems to come to light.
if those stats are legit u r pretty based m8
>downloaded over 8tb
>only torrents that stall are unseeded ones
I don't understand how or why people have that many problems with qbitorrent.
>inb4 someone links to QB forum where everyone posts about stalled torrents because they don't know about port forwarding
I've used Transmission for the last year and she's always been a babe.
try downloading a 300gb mp3 pack with 10k files using qbtittorrent or transmission-QT, open the file manager and try selecting and unselecting folders/files, clear example that freetard client developers only download yiffy shit

I think it's time to stop being an autist fag, OP. Just properly configure your router (open the port, and forward it to your PC/NAS), have a decent HDD (HGST for example), normal operating system. Upgrade your client with care, and test it properly. If it doesn't work, downgrade it to the old version.
You know faggots, this is the perfect example for a 'PEBKAC' case.
>have a HiDPI screen
>using deprecated software
How does it feel to be clinically retarded?
Transmission sucks balls. Lack of details and everything opens in a new window. Also a lot of stupid decisions such as downloading surrounding files which you marked to be skipped while other clients don't have that issue with the same torrent. Inconsistencies and lack of thought given to UX that is common to a lot of free software..
The truth is uTorrent has probably the best UI with a lot of details in all of its views. Shame its not free and got profaned by shitty ads
>mfw never had any problems with qb and I've been using it for years
Don't be a cunt. "All of them" could be zero security holes. The fact you didn't specify what they were tells me you have know fucking clue, and therefore should have kept your beak shut.
>those spergs w/ excuses
Open sores torrent clients are garbage. G A R B A G E.
People only use them because they're open source and because they can shitpost about it on this fucking cancerous board.
No good software exists of Linux. It's a timesink for neet nerds who want to circlejerk in desktop threads.
Once you grow up, you'll realize I am right. uTorrent is only good client.
Yes, deep down you know I'm right. Stop making excuses, don't even bother replying

>MUH UNPATCHED CRITICAL ΜTORRENT 2.2.1 VULNERABILITY
- No affected version list
- Even if the version you are using is affected, the vulnerability consists of passing command line arguments to the client
- The command line arguments aren't even dangerous
- There's a "/LAUNCHBUNDLEDURL" parameter, but it can only open a page in your default browser
I'll be enjoying my vulnerabilities and fast, bloat-free torrenting software, thank you.
no, nigga, it doesn't. but closed source means bloat. shit, it's the definition of bloat. you don't even KNOW what's inside your program.
open source/free software CAN be bloat, but you can easily check and fix it.
>closed source means bloat. shit, it's the definition of bloat.
Is this what they call freetard logic?
That's not what bloated means.
There's bloated as fuck software, open or closed source.
Same goes for non-bloated software.
You're not going to call notepad.exe bloated now, are you?
