Let op met online iets kopen!

Dit bericht is misschien een beetje los staand van Game nieuws maar is toch belangrijk om te horen! Pas op met het online kopen van dingen zoals games etc. terwijl je Kazaa/Grokster/Morpheus aan staat. Deze programma’s beschikken over een software die ondertussen meekijkt en geld van je rekening kan plukken wanneer ze “pinpas codes/creditcard nummers” zien.

Summary: For those using P2P programs like Kazaa, Morpheus, and Limewire, you had best watch what your buying online. Why? Because these programs now come with improved software that can steal money you are spending online!

Full Article: We all heard about spyware, well now Kazaa, Morpheus and LimeWire are sneaking a new type of nastiness onto your computer, software that – without you even knowing it – redirects commissions for online purchases you make from other vendors you make back to them. For example, if you buy a CD from an affiliate of Amazon.com, say some charity, the software fools Amazon into crediting the commission to Morpheus, not the charity! The story quotes a LimeWire Developer who admits ‘While I agree that this is really a bit of a scam, it is a way for us to pay salaries while not adversely affecting our users.’ The insidious part is the stealware program remains even if you delete the original P2P software. And you supposedly gave your permission when you clicked through the EULA
