While you are correct on the above statement (i.e. a music file that actually is a music file will not give you a virus), the use of file-sharing applications does pose a lot of threats, there are hundreds of worms designed solely to spread through their architecture.. I believe you should try a search for kazaa (or any file-sharing application) on symantecs security response site..Originally posted by Azrikam
You cannot get a virus from MP3 files, regardless of where you get them.
As such I have edited all the above links which contain pirated software.5. Post promotional information about any illegal activities (including bulk piracy of VCDs & DVDs). We will not permit people to use the forums to distribute files which are pirated or aid in the production of pirated material. Updated 24/1/04 : Following the BPI's actions against CD-WOW we do now allow the open discussion of P2P MP3 music file sharing.
