Multimedia files are commonly found on web. Like short clips, ringtone, etc. I want to know what are the risk involved in this. I am sure there are some virus or malware issue which commonly infects many pc. As a antivirus will never check media files. There can be a virus injected inside the audio or video file. I remember to receive mails outlook which has a video attachment. When I click on that my system antivirus warned a warning related to trojan infections.
Does this still existing today. I download a lot of ringtone from various website. Also I use a video downloader to get files from media sites.
