Abstract

See full text

In one embodiment, in a peer-to-peer network, data intended to be transferred directly from a first peer node to a second peer node are first redirected to an interception node. In the interception node, the data may be processed prior to being forwarded to the second peer node. The data may be scanned for virus detection and removal, for example.
