Popular P2P file sharing service Limeware has enlisted the help of anti-virus
outfit AVG to offer its Pro users with free file scanning.
If the likes of the MPAA and the RIAA are to be believed, the only people who
use Bittorrent sites are so called ‘pirates’ scouring the underbelly of
cyberspace trying to get hold of the latest movies and music for free, robbing
poor defenceless artists of their livelihoods in the process.
With this in mind you might think that these downloaders deserve any form of
malware their PCs get infected with in their pursuit of ill-gotten gains, but
Limeware appears to disagree and has licensed the AVG Anti-Virus SDK engine and
integrated the anti-virus and anti-spyware protection into LimeWire Pro.
