A really good way of testing crap that you download from P2P networks (or anywhere else for that matter) is called Sandboxie (www.sandboxie.com). It's free and easy to use. What it does is create a virtual environment in which to run applications. This is great to do if you want to surf pron and other questionable websites which are known to infect your computer just by going there. Because the browser runs in a virtualized memory space, any infection happens in the virtualized environment. Once you close it, the environment goes away along with any malware. If you download something and want to see if it is legit or a virus, you just right-click the install file and select "Run Sandboxed" and it will run the install in a virtualized environment. If you discover that the program is a trojan, you close the sandbox and it all goes away.

[citation][nom]dreamphantom_1977[/nom]So, just curious, if you pay the funds, does the key actually work? By the way, if you do pay the $15 dollars, where do you pay it to? Cant that be tracked?[/citation]
I've always wondered how people planned to get away with extortion like this. Mail money to my P.O. box, give me a creadit card payment, etc.. etc.. All that is traceable (and Credit Card payments more so), so how do they plan to get away with this? Or are they just in it to harass poor, copyright infringing perverts?

And if you needed another reason to purge your browsing history more often, here it is.

While Virus writers do disgust me, the RIAA/MPAA proposal is even more vomit-inducing, nice tie-in Kevin.

I was thinking the same thing. There are places where you can setup numbered accounts for accepting wire transfers, but they usually only deal with large transfers (6 digits at a minimum). Even then, it's not completely untraceable.

They don't charge the credit card, they just steal the information of the card. That's the real idea behind the scam.

it's 'porn' not 'pron' - and if the word can't be used on some sites, try pornography, or pornographic material - then it won't be tagged. "Pron" just seems so ten years ago...

Fuck RIAA and MPAA, they should get banned from life but then again they have none. How can you kill those who have no life?
