    - Serious security hole in Morpheus -

    According to an article published by ZDNet at http://zdnet.com.com/2100-11-828592.html, the file-swapping application, Morpheus, has a security hole that could expose information on hard disks with the application installed.

    File-swapping utilities only share data from a specified directory. However the vulnerability in Morpheus could allow an attacker unlimited access to any files on a user's hard disk.

    MusicCity, the company that created Morpheus, claim that there have been more than nine million downloads of the application. Unlike Napster, Morpheus allows content providers to deploy third-party digital rights management technology to protect their copyright works, which protects the copyrights of artists involved.

    And you have to remove the ',' in the end of the link for it to work.

    apparently it seems to an "administrative" error and not a security hole according to them. Seems I've heard this line of logic from, now what was the name of that company? Macrosludge? no ..umm.
