    The link to this story was originally posted on Slashdot.org

    www.musiccity.com

    The MusicCity file sharing network suffered a massive Denial of Service attack, and, even more interesting (and the only reason I posted this) THE ATTACKS INCLUDED ENCRYPTED MESSAGES SENT TO COMPUTERS THAT CHANGED REGISTRY SETTINGS ON THE COMPUTERS.

    (I realize that some people here may use Morpheus, so I posted the details below.)

    Quote from the story here:
    If a company has no clue that the software they send out includes instructions that will allow it to execute encrypted commands and change settings on your computer I will NEVER get software from that company - EVER.

    Not to mention the various legal copyright disputes (there IS a legal way to download independant artists' music - through mp3.com) - which I won't get into because I'm SURE there are many people here who have VERY different opinions.
