    Anyone thought if they infected a music file with a virus, burnt it to CD, wacked it into a CD Player (one other than a computer) that the music would br all funny and it would stuff the cd player?:rolleyes: :confused:

    The virus would get so dizzy it wouldn't know what to do. ;)





    In reality the cd player wouldn't recognize the file type so would do nothing.

    true. But yes the CD Player will because you have burnt the disc with a cd burning program. It would be funny if the cd player blew up!!!!

    A CD player could not process a computer virus. A player is a player. No OS to infect at all.

    Exactly, the very, very worst you could do would be to make a CD that no CD player could read. There is nothing to infect in a CD player.

    A true Audio CD can't really contain a virus AFAIK. If its an MP3 CD, it could have files that exploit vulnerabilities in Windows Media Player, etc., but it couldn't actually contain an executable file with a virus.
