    This isnt as bad as it sounds but, if you use Kazaa, there is a 100% chance you have a virus. Kazaa is pretty much its own trojan... If you dont believe me and you know a little about computers, Check how many ports your comp has open to the internet. There should be between 1 and 10 on an average computer. The first time you launch Kazaa it opens over 400 ports, even if you have a ton of firewalls up. You have to close them all manually even if you delete Kazaa. But, you don't need to delete Kazaa unless you are paranoid that the people who made it want to screw with you. It's like the flu, it's not good, but I doubt it will kill you.


    Suffice to say this guy is spouting Bullshit of the highest order

    Hmmmmm, I&#39;m getting tons of SYN port scan attacks at the moment, anything up to 20 a minute (&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33, so I called BT Broadband up to ask how to change IP address so they&#39;d go away.

    The techy told me how to do that (dead easy), and then asked if I had Kazaa installed.
    "Yes", said I.
    "It&#39;s a trojan then" He said.......
    "Uninstall it and download Trojan Killer to wipe it out" he said.

    Any thoughts, anyone?

    Mate the guys speaking metaphorically..as in just using kazaa is as bad as having a trojan.Kazaa its self cant be a trojan.A trojan is basicely a file in two parts one on your computer and the other half on the attackers to control the first.So it dosnt matter what p2p or you use if you&#39;re downloading files your at risk if you&#39;re paraniod.

    Well perhaps i have golden balls - but i have been using the fasttrack network with KaZaA Lite for the past 14 months as a SuperNode and not once have i got a virus let alone a Trojan.
    I think if people are sensible and keep their PC security up to date what is there to worry about.
    Common sense and a small amount of PC literacy is all that&#39;s required.
    I&#39;m gonna get this topic moved to filesharing now.
