Agreed, but it just adds another way to get a virus/trojan. Sure people will still get them from stupid browsing, but this is just another avenue for infection.A resurgence? No, because personal computers are not infected any more than they were last year. Many viruses come from simple web surfing. P2P is not responsible for that. Whether or not a new LimeWire is released, won't make people any more or any less stupid.
Well the illegal method would be bit-torrent. Basicly sites like btjunkie, mininova, and the piratebay. Use Utorrent as a client as well. The advantage is that you will be able to download entire collections in one go. The drawback is that bit-torrent uses extremely high amounts of bandwidth because of the number of connects. It also needs tools like Winrar. And it takes time.Guest said:
Can you (in the know) fellows suggest some better sites to use for music downloads.???
On another note - its not Limewirethats full of virus's its the files you download. And its not rocket science to spot the virus files. As cryptopsy said - .exe file and 16kb - come on.If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine
The article states that Limewire itself came with spyware and malware. Yes you can get more by naively downloading viruses, but the client itself has been improved by removing the unpleasantness.On another note - its not Limewirethats full of virus's its the files you download.
BearShare also uses the gnutella network. Depending on your country of residence, if Limewire is illegal there, BearShare should be too.What about BearShare???..says its legal downloads?
