	Thanks for all the info about the Large ICMP packets issue.

	Well, I hope this question is not too off-topic, but I started to
get Napster alerts from snort ("Napster 7777 Data"). One of my users had 
installed Napster in a Linux box in which he has root priviledges.

	I've being trying to gather some info about the real risks of
running Napster but found nothing very conclusive except for occasional
bugs. I want to be able to decide if I can allow hime to run Napster or
not, i.e. if it's safe to run it, and if not, I would like to have the
right arguments. 

	I guess that if there is a rule for Napster it means that Napster
is dangerous. Can you point out some references/opinions on this?
