Serious uTorrent Client Flaws Found By Google Could Lead To Pwnage

If you’re a user of uTorrent, you should grab the latest versions of the popular torrenting tool. I say that because Google’s Project Zero went public with a seriou security bug could result in you getting pwned while you’re getting whatever content you’re looking for.

The flaw involves having JavaScript code on a website that can connect to your uTorrent app and leverage it to potentially serve up malware. That means you need to download the version 3.5.3 Beta for the uTorrent Classic client to address the issue. uTorrent Web has already been updated to version is v0.12.0.502 which also addresses the issues. Most people use the former though, so I’d get to patching your uTorrent install to avoid getting pwned.
