is reporting that this week several Windows users that the uTorrent BitTorrent client was suddenly being flagged as a threat by Windows Defender as "Potentially Unwanted Software." The article goes on to state that other Antivirus software has been labeling uTorrent as a threat, and the uTorrent download page now triggers a warning from MalwareBytes real-time protection. If you use BitTorrent to get your latest Linux distro, you may want to stray away from uTorrent. I know personally I never updated passed 1.6 until switching to qBittorrent a couple years ago. Based on what I saw from later versions of uTorrent, this news isn't all that surprising.
