A friend alerted me to a piece of spam he just received with the subject line "Can't Use Limewire? We Have Your Replacement"
It includes links, presumably to downloads of some sketchy software, at 20hugeupdates.info (the site is down at the moment). The domain was created on 07-Dec-2010 16:41:26 UT.
As an alert to Limewire users who were left in the lurch when the software was withdrawn due to court order, there is NO official Limewire replacement, and anyone operating under these auspices, particularly by spamming, is trying to sell you a bill of goods, and quite likely infect your computer with malware.
From the limewire website:
