    Kazaa, Grokster, and Morpheus suffer from a remote denial of service vulnerability. Furthermore, the vulnerability also allows identity hijacking, allowing an attacker to send a message to the target faking someone else's name.

    Solution:
    The vendor has released a new version that is not vulnerable to the mentioned vulnerability.


    I refuse to show the link to where I got this information publicly as it shows the details of the exploit. Contact me if you want more information.
