    From SecurityFocus comes news that a pair of coders with a deep hatred of software pirates have gone public with a months-old experiment to trick file sharers into running custom spyware they wrote that scolds users and phones home to a server. They circulated the program disguised as sought-after downloads like Unreal Tournament 2004 and Microsoft source code, and they have a website that updates in real time whever someone executes it. They've logged IP addresses for over 12,000 'pirates' since January. The EFF says the vigilantes may be committing a crime."

    source

    they still like to call people that share on p2p apps pirates when this is not the case.

    still the site is now getting a good slashdotting (ddos attack in laymans terms) so they are not gonna be collecting information after there server melts.

    Please visit here just once to use up their bandwidth:

    Notice that many of the ips are 192.168.x.x -- thus unrouteable on the internet.

    surely this wouldnt hold up in court though - they are actively going out of their way to put out software in order to catch someone, which is a honey trap.

    So I went in there, and left them a nice message on their comments section, to atagonise them:

    Oh my goodness Cliff and Justin - you are such idiots &#33;&#33;
