From AMule Project FAQ
Geaiez is known to be a Client
which repeteadly requests for you shared files list. It has been often
rumoured to be a RIAA/MPAA/CIA/FBI
Client trying to get (illegally) a list of illegally
shared files and the IPs of the people shareing them.
In fact, it has been concluded that this rumours are false. Or at least not
It seems that Morpheus
Clients, based on mlDonkey, instead of generating a random 6 characters
long username by default, it uses a specific username as default (just as
uses ''http://www.aMule.org'' or eMule
uses ''http://emule-project.net'') which is (guess what?) '''geaiez'''. Not
only that, but also, old mlDonkey Clients
apparently request for all shared files to all those Clients
they connect to.
So, what seems to be like a single Client
requesting repeatedly for your shared files list, is in fact many Clients
requesting for your shared files list every time they connect to you.
Anyway, allthough there are no proofs leading to assure there is some
government behind those Clients, you should keep your eyes wide-open: don't allow
other Clients to get a list of your shared files if you have
anything private being shared (we already assume you do '''not''' share
stuff your are not allowed to share!).
