Music Pirates Will Be The Next Target For Hackers

According to this article: Hackers Seek XP SP2 Weaknesses, users of peer-to-peer services like Kazaa will become the new targets of hackers. The new service pack for Windows XP contains a firewall that turns off a computer's "listening service mode" but users of file sharing software have to turn this mode back on for the file sharers to work. This mode is what hackers use to connect with and take over a computer.

So if you are a music pirate ... tough. I hope you get hacked soon.
