uTorrent = botnet + backdoors?

µTorrent is shit due to the simple fact that the masses fall for it. For god sakes, how retarded does this sound to you: using proprietary closed software to pirate for free software? I'm not an expert in reverse engineering, but in early 2012 I reverse engineered core aspects of the µTorrent software package.

My discoveries were hugely distorted by executable packers and low-level source code protectors, but after some initial decrypting (which again was very hard to achieve due to heavy anti-debugging mechanisms set in place by the developers), I was assured that the software has _at least_ two backdoors which listen to simultaneous packet transfers from very specific byte streams which originate from servers. At least one of those servers is located in the United States of America. Believe me, this is not the same server which manifests the µTorrent update tracker.

Because those pieces of the program are heavily protected with industrial tools and programming techniques and created 'on the fly' and dynamically added to the runtime environment using techniques as TLS callbacks, it perfectly manages to stay under the radar of firewalls (in most cases the µTorrent application has been granted full authorization on all ports anyway) and anti virus installations.

From the very specific protection and professional dynamic software creation during runtime it's obvious to tell that this is not developed by a graduate computer science engineer. No, I wouldn't be surprised at all if one day the public would find out that specialized cyber divisions of secret national security agencies have been messing with µTorrent since BitTorrent decided to team up with MPAA[1] and buy µTorrent[2].

So what do you guyz think? Others say that it is a huge botnet cuz of MPAA, and now the backdoor theory too. I still use utorrent though. A mistake?

I've heard those stories ages ago, i think i gonna go back onto old uTorrent, one of the first ones, one that doesn't have this tracking shit.

From what i heard, is that "uTorrent sends information to developers about of what you download"
