Kazaa users can now get hold of a hacked version of the peer-to-peer file sharing software which claims to be spyware free. Earlier this month Kazaa users discovered that the client software includes what is effectively a Trojan program which connects to another network called Altnet and taps the user's processing power and storage space.

    Brilliant Digital Media, the company behind the stealth peer-to-peer software, plans to activate the software on users' machines in the next few weeks and sell the resources to be used for distributed computing.

    But recently released Kazaa Lite software is a hacked-up version of the Kazaa client without the third party software or banner adverts.
