So my setup is essentially
MyPC -> VPN Server -> Remote SOCKS Server in Utorrent -> Destination torrent swarm
The VPN server is a well known "no-logs" provider, the country is the Netherlands and i have a different gateway/entry and exit ip when i connect.
I use the "elite" Socks5 proxy (which supposedly omits the header) ONLY for Utorrent, nothing else.
And it works perfectly with good speeds, its a simple IP:Port addition in Utorrent, and i do all hostname lookups and p2p everything only through the proxy server in Utorrent. (I know and have ticked all the right tabs in bittorrent and connection tabs, and i use forced encryption thats in Utorrent, which i know, means very little but nevertheless i select it.)
I have verified that during torrents download, the IP that appears in the peer swarm, is this Socks5 server in another EU country, like Czech Republic.
So, my Utorrent traffic is a tunnel nested in an encrypted VPn tunnel, and at no point is the VPN ip exposed in Utorrent swarm. Although i understand that the proxy server knows and can see my VPN IP in the Netherlands. That doesnt bother me, because its not my home IP.
Is there any security risk in this nesting of socks5 Utorrent proxy in the VPN tunnel that makes me MORE vulnerable, instead of using simply the OpenVPN tunnel for torrents?
