ShareazaV4 And Shareaza.Com Are Fake!
 
The version of Shareaza, called ShareazaV4, currently maintained by Discordia Ltd on Shareaza.com is totally FAKE. It can install spyware and gives you a non-real Shareaza.

You should only update at http://shareaza.sourceforge.net

The latest Shareaza versions (2.3.1.0 and above) has security fixes for this problem. Please update immediately!

Is My Shareaza Fake
 
I have Shareaza 6.0 . it is by Discordia. Is it the fake one.

Thanks

The answer to your question is yes it's a fake one. As Neglacio states in his first sentence, Discordia is the fake one. Present version should be 2.4, not above 3.

No wonder I do not feel inspired to buy Sony products any more with the Sony director a part of the RIAA & of iMesh. I think I read a different article which gave the direct link of Sony to such issues. The Sony director being a part of the iMesh story & of RIAA also, maybe one of the off-shoot links. :)

Hey , just downloaded the real Shareaza and I must say that I like the fake one soooo much better. I love the player in the fake one. i might just reinstall it as I am having trouble getting downloads in the real Shareaza. Never did in the fake one It was more like iTunes. My most favorite player of all

Well , my real Shareaza was very short lived. Could not get it to downlload. gave only one result and then would not download the song. tried other song downloads and gave only a few results , then would never download. hey , I don't have time for such nonsense. I want something that works. So , i am right back with the "Fake" Shareaza version 6.

um ... so why did you post here? Did you do a clean install & remove the old preferences folder or let Shareaza use the Discordia Shareaza preferences. That in itself would most likely have not been good for the 'genuine' article. :)

You sound like a very patient person. I guess you don't share files either right? Just grab songs & run. Welcome to the Gnutella 'sharing' community btw. :)

And as for iTunes, well everyone has their favorites. I use iTunes, have since iTunes version 2, but these days the program been a little rubbishy. Forcing changes on users. eg: who wants files named 03 03 03 03 03 03 03 03 title.mp3
There used to be an option to stop this in preferences, but iTunes removed the option for the user to change it. Now there's only one way to prevent it.

Yes I am patient because if I wasn't , I would tell you what kind of character you have. And lets just say . It would not be a good thing.






Nope. Did a clean install. Just did not work. Neither did Frostwire. i have tried Frostwire , poorf. Ares Poor Shareaza poor. Fake Shareaza fair but best one out of the three. i am beginning to thinkl these P2P software is not worth the bother. iTunes isd only 99 cents. Not bad for great quaility. i will probably just stay with iTunes. Never found a better one yet.

Well that's another funny preference. iTunes isn't great quality, it's decent quality. Also they really like their DRM and other restrictions. There are very few great "legal" download sites and by far the most of them are electronic music only. Sites like BeatPort, which sell 320Kbps mp3 and even in some cases proper FLAC for little more than your precious iTunes sells DRM cripled 192Kbps m4p files.

I prefer the real thing i.e. either the physical CD or a 1:1 copy of said CD.
