#5531 new Bug

Unencrypted connection to webseeds

Reported by: Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 2.82
Severity: Major Keywords: webseeds, security, privacy


Transmission connects to unencrypted webseeds (via http://) even if "Require Encryption" is set.

Files will then be transmitted over the network unencrypted. A third party could see which files you download just from looking at the network traffic.

Expected behaviour: Transmission only connects if there is some kind of encryption (https://)
