"Good, but what network mischief?"
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I first downloaded this app and watched with awe as the screen filled up with dozens of files. Far faster and better than the Gnutella net. Great, right? But then I looked at my DSL modem lights and noticed the lights flashing long after I had quit the app. I did some snooping, and it turns out there was a game network using my machine, and a ton of "possibly unfriendly" requests at my firewall. I tried a slightly later version, and the same thing happened. So unless and until these security concerns are addressed, I'm sticking to older, pokier software.
