    Default Did CNN made a server out of your computer?

    "Watch a live video, share your PC with CNN

    By Brian Livingston

    Many people who watched live streaming video of the inauguration of U.S. President Barack Obama on Jan. 20 may not realize that their PC was used to send the video to other PCs, too.

    Clicking "yes" to a CNN.com dialog box installed a peer-to-peer (P2P) application that uses your Internet bandwidth rather than CNN's to send live video to other viewers."

    thanks!

    Curious that they classify it as not a virus. Perhaps a relay is not a virus.
    It's a TROJAN in my book.

    Agreed, they got smart to not use their own server capacity.
