uTorrent Is Installing a Program Could Blow Up Your Computer

Packaged with the latest version of µTorrent is a program called Epic Scale, a surreptitious digital currency miner that secretly uses your computer’s processing power in order to make money for µTorrent and Epic Scale. There is a clause in Epic Scale’s policy that says its software might literally destroy your computer. […] An administrator for µTorrent confirmed that the program was, in fact, being installed on Windows machines, where it was generating Litecoin (which is similar to Bitcoin) and sending them back to µTorrent and Epic Scale. The program could be uninstalled, but only if you actually realized it existed in the first place. – Jason Koebler, MOTHERBOARD
