I am quite interested as to how the RIAA will "hack" into your machine.
1) Firewall will help against them, they have to get past that 1st
2) The only real ways "I" know to hack is via Memory buffer overflow exploits common to windows or some pre intstalled back door program. ( From my knowlage of PC's not personal attempts) How the hell are they going to hack your machine, are MS going to tell them of the newest holes in windows so that they can hack you b4 they release the fix
3) What if you run Linux? Linux is a very safe OS when it comes to hacking and then its still a memory buffer overflow exploit again or an open port with some service running that they can control, other than that you are safe with any OS really
4) Also I have this niffty little option to encrypt my whole HDD with 256bit strength encryption etc, they are going to have to hack that aswell if they ever get a hold of my pc.
So how will the riaa hack you? i have heard of "new technology" (yea right sounds like this guy was talking out of a certain hole when he thought that up) and "viruses" that AV makers wont release Signitures for, but which way will it be done.
It seems that the RIAA are making empty threats.
Also since the courts just ruled that p2p is legal as its akin to VCR's that they have a legal purpose to them and so therefore can't be made illegal. Going on this how can they justify legalising attacks the masses to destroy the few of us that actually do this bad bad thing LOL.
