The Sharman Networks have updated Kazaa in order to protect users from the recent MyDoom virus. The virus spreads mostly via email but can also utilize P2P-networks (Kazaa) for self distribution.
"Users of latest versions of Kazaa are protected against MyDoom and other viruses, provided they have enabled the built-in BullGuard antivirus feature which is updated with the most recent virus definitions," says Phil Morle, Director of Technology, Sharman Networks. "The BullGuard software is free to Kazaa users and enabled automatically when the Kazaa software is downloaded. It provides advanced virus protection for peer-to-peer use."
Prevention is always better than cure and by using this feature, Kazaa users are playing a role in stopping the spread of all viruses. This has the benefit of protecting the Fasttrack peer-to-peer network, which is also licensed by several other file sharing applications.Source: Yahoo!
