Trojan infects mp3 (and other multimedia) files

There is a new worm/trojan out in the wild, that manipulates multimedia files in order to spread itself.
It converts MP3 files to WMA, that additionally request the user to download a “Codec” (which is in fact a trojan giving others full access to your computer).
If the user spreads his multimedia files, he is also spreading that malware :doh:
