The LimeWire interface shown in Windows XP.
Maintainer: Lime Wire LLC
Latest release: 4.12.4 / July 26、2006
Use: File sharing
LimeWire is a peer-to-peer file sharing client for the Gnutella network. It is free software released under the GNU General Public License. Limewire was the first file sharing program to support firewall-to-firewall file transfers、a feature introduced in version 4.2、which was released in November 2004.
LimeWire is written in Java and therefore runs on any computer with a Java Virtual Machine installed. To facilitate installation for casual users、installation packages are available for Microsoft Windows、Mac OS X、and in the RPM format for Linux. Support for Mac OS 9 and previous versions has been dropped with LimeWire 4.0.10. The Windows version of the LimeWire installer includes a version of Sun Microsystems' Java installer which will download and install version 1.5 of the Java Runtime Environment if it detects the machine does not have a recent version of Java installed.
LimeWire uses the SHA-1 and tiger tree hash cryptographic hash functions to ensure that downloaded data is uncompromised. Although researchers have identified possible vulnerabilities in the SHA-1 algorithm、because LimeWire does not rely on SHA-1 alone、these vulnerabilities do not have many adverse implications for LimeWire's verification of downloaded files.
