    The Kazaa virus

    Those people with kazaa beware of a worm that is disguised as a 216kb music file, when you get it, it copies itself and sends itself out to kazaa users. It doesn't cause much damage, except fill up your memory with copies of itself, which means a very slow computer.

    Umm. It's not that new a virus. And it's not a virus. It's called Benjamin and was created as an attempt to deal with piracy and child pr0n that was being distributed on Kazaa.

    You need to stay a little more informed I think.

    I ditched kazaa lite and now use regular kazaa with kazaa tap which let's you have updated kazaa but without spywares, ads and has a quick search engine without the 100 results limit...

    Check it here : http://www.coolshiz.com

    Thx Scorp... I checked it out but I must argue that, in my opinion, Kazaa Lite is better.
