I need some help figuring out something. I was looking at my network traffic using Wireshark and I saw a bunch of inbound UTP (uTorrent Transport Protocol) packets to my IP. About 10 different IP's every minute or so.

Whats the story with that? Should I block them? (I'm using a Mac)

It's really strange and stood out to me because I never used the BitTorrent protocol on this computer and we rarely used the protocol on this network in the last year, maybe once or twice at most.

I'd like to see that. Can you post a trace at and link to it here? – Spiff Aug 26 '12 at 3:14
I'm having the same problem, it just started the last few days and i'm getting bombarded with uTorrent packets. Did you get this resolved? – Anagio Nov 18 '12 at 23:59

After some investigation I discovered the trafic was due to a program called Miro using DHT for the BitTorrent protocol.
