This is an advice to my friends that please avoid using Songs.pk website & any songs downloaded from this website.

This advice is based on following news on the Hindustan times, this site is currently used by hackers to hack data from targeted computers. Also would like to mention that I have been using this site here & there for few years and I personally did not face any issue.

Please read full news story at:

  5. This is true.


    Please avoid it.


    Can you guide us how to know if we are the victim or not? I downloaded a lot of songs from there, but never got a warning. I'm using Mcafee enterprise edition 8.5i. I update its database frequently. Which anti-virus or Anti-spyware is good which will tell us that we are affected or not?

    Please help me..

  6. As I said before, most probably the files you have downloaded may not be infected. I myself have downloaded songs from this site for temporary listning but never faced any issue.

    The threat was announced by Hindustan Times & IBM Internet Security Assessment report. My understanding is that some hackers may use this site to upload songs that are infected with software to hack data from targeted computers.

  8. Introduce Windows. To do this, embed the essential Windows establishment plate inside the drive and restore the pc. Once the framework starts booting up, press F8 over and over. This may take you to the boot menu. zepto File Virus Removal
