He appears to have just sold me one of these CD's:

I'm also contacting Amazon about this thread and the fact that he's selling illegal software.

Class act of a guy. He's holding my refund for ransom until I take back my negative feedback. (I'm dealing with Amazon...)

I didn't find it in the thread, but it's on the New Releases list of www.direct2drive.com but it's the Strategy First version I guess.

Direct2Drive appears still to be selling a "Hacker Elite" version of the game. It seems highly likely this is unauthorised, considering both IV and Steam offer a digital download of it.

Steam are an authorised retailler, don't worry about that :P

Nah, even versions of Uplink from Introversion will flag a false positive from norton (and some other software), since the Multimonitor uses the same port (31337) as Back Orifice. Do yourself a favour, uninstall the horrid bloatware that is Norton and get something decent.
