uTorrent/EpicScale story appears to be fabricated

Hidden miners

Just a heads up, several software and compromised programs(even willfully hidden) have miners working inside them. A great example of something seeming innocent while it ripped me off is utorrent. the newer versions past 3 seem to have a bitcoin miner. I personally like to help archive and preserve rare interesting things for the people of later years, yet I had my rig running almost non stop as usual and my electricity bill more than tripled. I was shocked. I pinned it down to utorrent and did some research.

It installs whether or not you accept the offer. the article is incomplete. so just keep watch and work with Deluge, Transmission, Tixati and Peerblock.

ELI5: What is a "Bitcoin Miner?" How do they work and how do they end up bundled in programs like uTorrent?

After hearing that uTorrent has a bitcoin miner in it and playing Bitcoin Billionare I was wondering what exactly a "Bitcoin Miner" is and how they work. Mind you, I don't really even understand what bitcoins are, but I understand enough about them.
