  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.
