    kazaa and Gamespy users beware

    I'm kind of amused by this. Members of Kazaa and Gamespy beware: nimda has made its way to your communities! read more here.

    It figures from all Ive read Kazaa is always getting viruses so one more just means people who use it will have to check every download more carefully.
    No good deed goes unpunished.

    In an email to users, GameSpy admitted that its GameSpy Arcade Installer had become infected with the Nimda-E virus. It has now replaced the infected file with a virus-free version of the installer.
    Gamespy has no quality control what so ever. I've been using it for about 3 years now and after about 15 patches and 3 different os's it still crashes for the same apex.exe error.

    you know i had a thought when i was reading the artical....the RIAA is bitching and moaning about piracy over kazaa as is hollywood. i wonder if they would goto to such an extreme as to hire someone to write a very nasty virus that only could be transfered through kazaa...something maybe writtin in delphie....and spread it through the p2p network to slow down or possibley stop piracy all together? and im sure theres some legal technicallity that they could get off on if they were ever implicated....i dunno it was just a thought i had.

    Release a bomb filled with Ritalin and Pharmacy death. Keep the rich above in the hills where the impact will not reach them. Then go for the ironic statement and call it a cure for pollution.
