Oh shit, that's evil. Where did you manage a software including this
kind of source code in first place? Don't say freshmeat.net! Or
sourceforge.net... I'm glad you were able to detect this and not run
the software.

Big sigh, indeed. I hate these script kiddies, crackers and people,
who only does harm to other people online. Was it a take-over of
an IRC channel, breaking to someone's system or whatever. I just
hate these people. I've never seen computer, internet connection and
everything related as a tools to cause harm and destruction. It's
beyond me, what satisfaction does these persons get...
