A bit late with this one, but whatever. To start off:

I wonder how many money the utorrent guys will make with this
>> No. 1282 [Edit]
Fuck utorrent. People should drop it faster than a hot potato.
>> No. 1283 [Edit]
It's been many years since it started to bloat. I've probably used Transmission the longest, but overall I recommend Deluge.
>> No. 1284 [Edit]
Glad I dropped that shit a while back. I've been using Deluge for a while now ever since somebody recommended it to me. It's not too bad.

I'm glad I stopped updating my copies years ago before they introduced ads.
I wont use a version past 1.8.1

They claim AMD is affected too, but they don't know how yet. What a bummer.

From what I've gathered there are two exploits, meltdown and spectre. Meltdown is intel only and effects everything they've made going back 20 years save a few exceptions (some atom, itanium cpus). Spectre has a few variants which effect Intel, AMD, and some mobile chips. I forget which, but I believe only one or two effect AMD, and for those it is harder due to architecture. That's all I got off the top of my head. AMD made a statement about that which is on their site explaining it better.

Windows is supposed to be releasing a band aid patch on the 9th for this. they're saying now it can be as bad as 30% slowdown due to the memory leaks and that this makes computers very vulnerable to hacking. All we can do is wait for windows and Intel to work something out.

Windows 10 has a patch I believe, 7 does too but not sure if that's pushed to windows update yet.
