Read the full sentence taken from the forum For all you know that 'software' is a keylogger owned by the Russian mafia used to bot your PC for large-scale distributed software attacks. The person who made the comment was making an assumption, not stating a fact. He could have been a disgruntled former member. 1) Gomez Peer is based in the USA. I have not experienced anything out of the eway after two years of using it. 2) If we are so paranoid then do not use software from several companies including Microsoft. In essence any software capable of contacting home base is capable of collecting the details on any hard disk. Software which auto-update can install anything unless you have a good firewall. Do a search on what certain companies especially one in particular had done in the past.

i always scare with program that allow u install their software into your computer.While installtion properly will by pass all your anti virus because u will allow it to install. Scare they will open a port thro your computer to be zombies or somekind or to store illegal data in your pc. But i myself have not use this Gomez peer but sound scary. They can always insert bad script later.who know.Currently i am using Karpersky 2010 Internet Security.I good antivirus and it can detect keyloggers and monitor suspicious traffic in and out of your pc.Maybe u should install one.

ekk.. i just joined the site. i heards its part of a really big company.. featured in some American magazine a lot. who knows... ive seen payment proofs and i have firewall and virus protectors.. that should help detect a keylogger? or i might just run it on a computer that has no personal information?

I really do not know if it's the Italian mafia or the Russian mafia or some other mafia. All I know as a computer scientist is that you should never run a program that is dedicated to monitorise your activity at your PC. Also, you should never run a program that can have access to your computer's resources. It's like if you have a safe to store your money and then tell to a burglar: "Hey that's my money-safe! It's made by steel and iron!" All he has to do in order to steal your money is to just find how he can destroy steel and iron.
