Here is Vimeo Downloader, a script I created to download videos from Vimeo: vimeo_The script should work on any system with a POSIX shell (such as Ubuntu, Mac OS X, or Windows with MSYS) and wget or curl (wget is in Ubuntu by default and also available for Windows, curl is in Mac OS X by default).
To use it, simply run with the ID of the Vimeo video you want to see. If you have any questions, please leave a comment on this post or contact me directly.
But if you prefer to use version 0.1, which defaults to downloading standard definition versions of videos, you can get it here.
For example, software like rootkits can be installed and will use newly added processes, wresting some control from the unwary administrator.
Update (2010-11-13): Vimeo Downloader 0.3 is now available.
Among other features, it will now download HD videos by default.
You really want to keep others from accessing your file system through some newly found vulnerability.If someone should get in, that person can possibly get important data, change security settings on the machine or even install some little piece of software you may not so easily catch.
