Abstract: Inside the world's most popular file swapping software, KaZaA, is hidden software called Altnet. The simile with the trojan horse is drawn and when activated, user's computers will become the work-horses of a giant virtual supercomputer. This kind of thing has been done before, take for example SETI@home, but not ever without the user's permission.
