    You cannot get a virus from MP3 files, regardless of where you get them.

    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..

    Cheers for that Kali. I've never had a problem, but it can't hurt to shore up your system.

    EDIT: For "legitimate file sharing" ;) , it doesn't hurt to have Kazaa block all files that could contain viruses. (.com, .exe, etc) It's available under Preferences somewhere.

    I don't bother with the peer to peer stuff at all these days.

    I use http://www.easynews.com, which replicates the last thirty days of binaries from Usenet. You can download 6GB of files a month for about £8.

    You can use it with a download agent to schedules files to be downloaded overnight. Additionally, I've found that with my 1Mb connection I virtually always get 144K/s download speed.

    are there any places i can get non-lossey formats, eg. wav files, instead of mp3s?
    there are some albums that arent available anymore and can be had on some mp3 sites and kazaa, but im not a fan of mp3s from these places.

    I doubt anyone will host Wav files of albums.. it would take forever to download it... you might as well buy the albums.

    Matt

    very impressed with allofmp3.com..Love the online encoding so you can select the quality you want to download.
