Music trojan infects when you play a song

A new trojan has been found by security analysts that uses the music and video you download to infect your machine with a trojan.

The trojan is transported via the Advanced Systems Format (ASF), used for the popular WMA, WMV and MP3 formats. The trojan is executed by way of a request to download a codec. Most users are used to being asked to download a new codec for file playback, but in this case you download malware instead.

What the reason to download anything anymore. Im mean like everything seems to have viruses. Well not very thing.

I was hit by 2 of these viruses this weekend. If you are unable to load Goggle or other major website's run your anti virus software. If it doesn't pick something up I would try a difference virus scan program.
