Is transmission safe to use now? (New Mac owner)

Post by ironmathyu5 » Thu Jul 16, 2020 3:37 pm

I just got a new Mac and while reading on the best torrent client, it seems like the leading one (Transmission) was victim of 2 attacks recently. Long story short, is Transmission's current version (2.92) safe now? Or should I just stick with Deluge? Thanks

Stick with Transmission over Deluge. Just yesterday I tested the latest v2 version of Deluge and even though it's better than the V1 it still bogged down before I had the first thousand loaded. (Mac mini 2.5 GHz i5 / 16 GB RAM). Even before I determined it was a no go I had already confirmed it was still eating up more CPU and RAM than Transmission. I must also say that I still prefer qBittorrent for its GUI and that it uses less CPU and RAM than Transmission. I do use Transmission for my "short-term / bit&run torrenting because it is so quick and easy when running but a few.
