View Full Version : Kazaa downloads changing filename?

I have on a few occasions begun to download a file through Kazaa Lite, only to have the record of its download change to a completely different filename when the download is still partway through.

Have other users known this to happen? Is it the result of another user coming into the stream who has the same file but a different name for it? Or is it something more sinister, such as someone trying to force obscene or copyright material onto a user who thinks (s)he is downloading something innocent?

I must say, in all of the cases of these I can remember, the changed name has been in some way related to the original, and the nature of the downloaded file has not surprised me (well sometimes slightly).

But the potential for a very nasty surprise occurs to me.

Any advice on why this happens?
