A friend of mine who is going to be traveling the world this summer expensive paid.
Care of the US government. Wanted me to set him up a p2p system that he could take with him.

I did him good. two solid state drive.. wifi,GB-ethernet wifi hacking tools, network intrusion tools.
sniffers, image viewers and my collection of the best p2p software that I thought he should have.

One of the p2p applications I installed was the latest version of limewire. Limewire 5.

well long story short, I had to test all of the apps installed, including limewire. One of the things that I noticed was. that 75% of the time. When I clicked on something that I thought was a music track. It was some type of virus or spyware. This is when I was searching for anything. when you have "All" set.

Type in the name of a popular band the first 10 file results at the top were always some type of malware dropper. If you didn't know what you were doing you could download and run this program without even knowing it. Looking that the shown file ext's is no help. even files labeled as mp3's. Where spyware.

No great surprise there then. He should have let him have WinMx  :yes:
