Is it safe to use an old version of µTorrent?

Mihai January 7, 2012

Is it safe to use µTorrent 1.8.2? Am I exposed to any major risks? Thank you! I am running Windows 7.

    you can check the What's New and update report, also if there are vulnerabilities in older versions perhaps better to upgrade to safer version.

    Why don't you download the latest version? It's less than 1MB and when you install it (over older), your old settings will remain.

    I'm not sure if it's a major risk, at the same time I'm wondering what's wrong with using the current version?

    uTorrent is at version 3.1, and there have definitely been security updates since 1.8.2.

    For example, there was a DLL hijacking vulnerability fixed in uTorrent 2.0.4.

    I'd definitely update and use the latest, secure version.
