Chrome blocks uTorrent

16 Jul, 2014

Google Chrome begins blocking downloads of the latest build of uTorrent. It says the file is “malicious” and Chrome has “blocked” it from being downloaded. Users can override this and download the file anyway, but Chrome displays a second warning:

This file will harm your computer. Even if you have downloaded files from this website before, the website may have been hacked. Instead of recovering this file you can retry the download later.

Google does not say why they block uTorrent.
