Update Vuze with libuTP patch to correct bug allowing DRDoS attacks ?
Hi, I just read an article about an important fix on BitTorrent clients:

It explains that developers made a patch to the libuTP software to stop "possibility of exploiting BitTorrent protocols for Distributed Reflective Denial of Service Attacks (DRDoS)".

As libuTP is an essential component for BT apps, I wonder if Vuze also needs to be updated ?

Thanks, Xavier
yup, on my list of things to do - thanks
Thanks for the reply - and the good work on Vuze client !

Some more informations for people interested (I'm not a technician, I can't explain code issues...):
