Living WTF (838448) writes "There's a security issue in the current uTorrent client. From the official uTorrent forum:

"[...] it's an exploit that makes use of specifically-engineered .torrent files with corrupt dictionaries, and is not a remote security issue. [...] Until a fix is implemented, be careful where you get your .torrent files from — that's all. Do realize that if you're not sure you can trust all of your RSS feeds, disable them for the time being (so to prevent Torrent from autoloading malicious .torrent files)."
The exploit can be found here http://www.milw0rm.com/exploits/3296."
