From the Be Careful What You Are Getting department...a new study reveals that 45% of the software/executable files downloaded from Kazaa have some kind of virus and/or trojan horse attached to them....I think I'll stick with music files!

"Some code was designed to infect every file in a computer user's Kazaa download directory with a virus. Other code would steal the user's AOL Instant Messenger password or install a program on their computer to allow the attacker to surreptitiously send spam through it or otherwise take over the machine remotely to steal personal data and files on the computer."
