Get rid of the security leak! Just uninstalling the software does not get rid of LIMEWIRE, or other file sharing software. Call before your the next victim of identity theft. Don't believe me? Sign up and I'll test your system! If I can't find a hole in your defense, you get your money refunded.
Now this may be reasonable if you are running older versions of LimeWire, but that program was patched in March 2005. So why kick up a fuss in November 2005? See WellAwareNet.com - Press Material.

Why has he got it in for LimeWire? It's one of the only file sharing programs that doesn't have adware, popups and hidden spyware in it! It is an Open Source Java application, so anyone who understands Java can download the code and read it. That makes it more secure, not less.
