hole card revealing software-myth?

I've heard of software that reveals the hole cards of the other players at the table but for some reason, thought that this was a myth.

In Greenstein's book however, he makes reference to the software.

Is there such software, and is there any way to detect it?

Back in 1999 at Planet Poker a team of CIS students cracked the psuedo-random card generator. Since then, no one's be able to do the same... it's essentially impossible as I understand it because the sites generators dont generator the next card until it's needed.


I started googling to see if there was software being sold that does this.

There is one that claims to sync. with the generator to "predict" the cards to come but sounds like a scam.

Afterall, who you gonna complain to when your cheating software doesn't work as advertised?!
