Are there risks to running P2P software on my computer?
Yes, you not only put your computer at risk by running P2P software, you put the entire College of Western Idaho network at risk. P2P software is designed to maintain an open door between your computer, the Internet and anyone who wants access to the files you have available to share. You make your computer vulnerable to viruses, and you provide criminals with an opportunity to use your computer to attack other machines on the network.
