haha thats sad...

... back-door communications channel called Windows Messenger Service

They call it a backdoor!

HA!

Acually... it is kinda like that ... we created a program in school that we can message eachother and the computer recieveing doesn't know who it comes from.

A very 'nice' feature... ;)


"Unkown Sender:
Hey baby, your looking Nice...
Me: Wrong computer, the next one over in the girl...
Unkown Sender: Uh... sorry."

When I first heard about this they said that they weren't going to make Windows Messenger anymore. That got me really excited until they said that windows Messenger is different then MSN messenger.
Oh well at least on my mac I don't have to have MSN messenger come up without being able to delete it.
