Napster Alternative: Hack Your Way Onto Non-Secure Hard Drives
from the that's-an-idea dept
Don’t want to be caught by the crazy RIAA pirating music onto your own hard drive? Why not use someone else’s computer? That appears to be the basic idea behind ShareSniffer, a new program that does what many hacking tools do (search out for people who left their computers open to anyone online) but with a P2P file sharing front end. There are apparently some legal issues involved here, and some people believe that using ShareSniffer may be completely illegal as it allows you to access unauthorized computers. The company (employee count of 3) says they disagree. Since you have to manually agree to set up file sharing on a Windows machine, they claim that any access must be authorized.
