    I've heard that KaZaa has a hole in it placed by the FBI so that they can moniter you. Is this true, or is it just an out-of-control rumour?

    MusicCity's official response...

    MusicCity

    Several stories have been printed, leading with a story that was printed in the BBC Online, reporting a security leak in Morpheus. The report is not true - The report of a security hole in Morpheus is FALSE.

    THIS REPORT IS FALSE

    · The report was allegedly made by an “anonymous” security consultant. Neither this consultant nor any others have contacted StreamCast directly to report a breach in security.

    · Several false postings have been made on behalf of StreamCast and Morpheus. One was reported by a source named Paul Sarsfield, who claimed to be a “Morpheus” employee. StreamCast does not employ any person by that name, nor have any StreamCast employees or company representatives posted any responses to this matter.

    · There has never been a security breech in Morpheus since its introduction in April 2001.

    I guess this is the place to mention "supernode" and all the false alarms it will give your firewall.

    This "hole" in morpheous seems to me to be a known problem in file sharing applications such as this. Also it is a problem in AIM.

    Its scary with all security risks filesharing progs are giving the normal user. Another thread was alive earlier today about the same security problems. I have to tell that I'm quite happy to use ftp for filesharing, less security issues with ftp but not failsafe though .

    Thats true, when will they learn to secure their products in a better way?

    What is the truth, who should we listen to? Can anyone here verify the problem?

    This "Supernode" should be the first "feature" to be turned off.
