When I updated uTorrent to version 3.4.2 build 38913 (32-bit) this morning it silently installed a piece of software called EpicScale. There was no information about this during installation and I did opt out of your other bundled software.



EpicScale is a bitcoin miner that also purports to use your "unused processing power to change the world". It's easily noticeable by the increased CPU load when the computer is idle.



The file date/time on the EpicScale files matches the time of the uTorrent update, which confirms uTorrent as the source.



Several other users are reporting the same thing here:



http://www.freefixer...ale.exe-153377/





(It is possible to uninstall EpicScale through the control panel, but that does not properly remove the files from ProgramData\EpicScale.)



Edit: Corrected build number typo, it's obviously 38913, not 28913.

Delete that pile o shit from your comp, go to old apps and install 2.2.1 version, never heard anyone complain about bitcoin mining with that.
