ShareZilla is a quick, cheap, and easy way to promote your products, services and web-sites across the latest and greatest thing on the Internet: Gnutella. ShareZilla intercepts every Gnutella search that comes across its network horizon and re-transmits an ad back to the person originating the request.

While running in stealth mode ShareZilla responds to search requests with a advertasment string, instead of a file. Since the viewer of the ad does not need to download any files (or viruses) to there system to get your ad across, ShareZilla takes the opportunity to scramble it's home IP address and other identifiying data that would otherwise be necessary to download a file, or find out who and where you are.
