hi there lord_mulder,
i wanted to report some spyware like behavior about smplayer_portable.exe
i have just downloaded MPUI.2008-06-16.Full-Package.exe from
and installed it completely - codecs + mplayer + smplayer
on running smplayer_portable.exe it tries to connect to the internet
in this host rautemusik.g24m.net without me opening any file like
internet radio station or anything else
is this behavior normal ? if yes then please tell me what data is
rautemusik.g24m.net gathering from my computer ?
please investigate this - perhaps the smplayer_portable.exe that you
got is infected with some kind of spyware
can you please tell me where did you get your version of
smplayer_portable.exe that you included in
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
