Word of Warning: Don’t Download Symphony 3 Beta just yet

January 29 2010

It seems people are excited about the upcoming Symphony 3 beta that is coming out shortly. So excited that I see a Symphony3Beta.exe has landed on bittorrents and Rapidshare, along with other sites. Here is the problem - IBM has not released a beta. Not even to Design Partners. So that file is not really Symphony 3 - it seems to be Symphony 1.3 Gold code - with a virus. Maybe even some malware. I won't spread what it is doing, but DO NOT DOWNLOAD Symphony3Beta.exe from anywhere other than symphony.lotus.com. It is not real and your computer and network will regret it.
