    "Major Bug Alert!"

    June 22, 2003  |  


    This program has a major, major flaw. When you first download it, the program scans your computer for files to share. If you do nothing, your entire 'puter is open to the world. You must manually set the perimeters to share only what files you are comfortable with.
    But the real killer is that (at least in my case), the program decided to reset the imposed limits. I left the program unattended, and when I returned, discovered that it had decided to share all 1.5 million files on my computer. It had reset the shared files without my permission. This is bad. Do you want anyone to access all your files without permission? I recommend that you do not install this program on any computer that has sensitive information. And make double-sure you have a good firewall in place. I had someone try 124 times in one day to get to files they weren't allowed into. Be very careful of this one. You've be warned.
