Limewire Court Order: Users at Danger

Submitted by:
Long story short: A recent court order required music sharing service Limewire to immediately shut down. More alarmingly, it appears the litigants in the case (the recording industry) were able to force existing installed Limewire software to try to automatically download and install a recording-industry approved patch, called "Limewire Autoupdate," on user's systems. Moral of the story? Even legitimate appearing services may not be able to protect your info if they are ordered to disclose info or change software overnight due to litigation! And what happens to those who paid for the "Pro" version? As mentioned in HTBI, now those lists of users will probably be in the possession of an adverse party.
