Just wondering on thoughts about download managers- do they pose are
security risk? Any known to be trojaned? The one I use is GetRight, does
anyone know if this one has known security issues?
I've heard good things about GetRight just so you know :-). I doubt it has
any remote hole other then perhaps a buffer overflow in the length of a file
name but I highly doubt that. The only security hole it might have is an
accidental one (and this applies to all programs) but again as I said, I
highly doubt it has one, I highly doubt few of the "big" (read: commonly
used) have security holes/trojans because users would notice something and
it would be found.
