i have noticed some malware-files that have the MP3 extension.. so, how does that work, when the file has an MP3 extension?

if i execute the files, since MP3 files are associated with my media player, will my media player just report that it cannot run the file?

here are some links for some samples:




i am not setup for testing to see what would happen if i run the files..

i am attaching one sample that i downloaded.. the password for the zipped file is "infected"

Yes, the program should verify the file format.
