HAHA. MP3’s containing viruses that will destroy you hd, haha. Where do they get this. You can’t be infected with a virus by opening mp3’s. It needs an exe or bat file to do something. I’m wondering who started this hoax. :slight_smile:

Hey, listen. Their economical situation is getting better ever since the Boris Yeltsin shithead is not president, and their computer technology might be better than USA’s. They are going to release a new type of CPU in 2002 that works at 20Ghz and costs a fraction of the amount that intel’s 2-4Ghz will cost in 2002. Just like the American government with the secret technology like the Echelon, area 51, etc, the Russians have their shit too…

Okay… the link obviously won’t post… Just go to http://news.yahoo.com and do a search for the Napster Virus. There’s the proof.

You have NO idea how many inexperienced people think that this CAN happen. I mean, just think about all those emails floating around warning you for the GOOD TIMES virus. Marketing is everything! :wink:

Then… sorry about the misunderstanding, guys.

I bet the 500 or so infected files,floating about on Napster-Are all by Metallicak. Metallicak are probably the turd burglers that spread this rumour. Well fuck me-But I would rather be infected with a virus than listen to anything by METTALLICAK.

Actually noobs,an MP3 file CAN contain a virus,ive seen cases where hackers send out an email where they say to pay them money or theyll release a phone cpnversation about you cheating or something of that sort,and they say your sure u wont believe them,so they include an MP3 file for u to listen to So you download the file,to see what they recorded of you on the phone,open it…and BAM your infected Anything is possible,although this story,as described in the article,is a fake virus lol
