Kazaa & Morpheus expose sensitive info
shank643 used our newssubmit to tell us that if you connect with a telnet client to someone that is running KaZaa (or a clone) you can see some information about the user. The website call it sensitive info, I would call it information that could be a little dangerous.
The telnet session will expose the users ip address (your ‘phonenumber’ on the internet) but more important it reveals the SupernodeIP where you are connected to. The Supernodes are the weakest point in a KaZaa network, taking them down will cause serious harm.
Kazaa and Morpheus allow users to easily search, share, discover, create, and communicate with other users. These products reveal sensitive information about the remote host, and the username that is currently being used by the remote client.
# telnet morpheus.users.ip.address
