D.I.R.T is B.S.

Checked out the post on d.i.r.t and found out it was originally posted in a online u.k. mag called the registry or something like that. The guy who sent it to the magazine is a scammer and con who is also a convicted felon. I got the story here.

He states that the original report had a few inaccuracies (it cant penetrate all known firewalls) most of the info is true:

"D.I.R.T. unquestionably permits police to upload bogus evidence to a suspect's machine and offers no auditing controls by which they might be caught, which was the focus of my original report"

and this is what to do about it:

Because it isn't presently detected by anti-virus software, one does have to look for evidence of it. By default, it installs two files in the C:\WINDOWS directory -- DESKTOP.EXE and DESKTOP.DLL. If you find either of those files, you need to remove them and any associated files (such as .LOG files), or re-format your HDD to be on the safe side.

One can also check their Windows registry under:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CurrentVersion HKEY_USERS\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CurrentVersion HKEY_USERS\DEFAULT\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CurrentVersion for any references to DESKTOP.EXE or DESKTOP.DLL.
