spammers in the region
i am sure this has been covered before, but why is it that when you perform a search, an "obscure" search for the most part, you will get 3 files named:

{search term}.url
{serch term}.mpg
{search term}.html


i have been seeing this regularly.

i have never downloaded this stuff cause i know what it is, but how many users are there out there that do not know?

do we know how to stop these knuckleheads from putting these scripts into gnutella?

burn spammers burn

I thought some of them are by ill script kiddies which want to spread their virii, others by p0rn sites to advertize without any costs, etc

I wanted to write a flooding programm against them some months ago, but i dunno if this is "legal".

I've read something about DoS attacks from the Gnutella net which can someone do anonymously, it would be funny to see their PCs crashed hehe

they are not script kiddies, they are pros. i am quite sure of it.

I'm a newbie, but I figured this part out REAL fast! (That is, the annoying xxx.AVI/xxx.URL, etc. stuff which points to P0rn sites, etc.) Got an unplanned eyeful in the process too...
