WMV files
« on: March 22, 2010, 02:43:14 PM »
Hello!

Is it possible to get infected by a WMV file? As far as I know that's only possible if this file includes a link to a malicious site. But how does my PC connect to that site then, through Windows Media Player or some other way? Am I safe if I run my Windows Media Player sandboxed then?

Thank you!
Intel Core i7 Q 740 @ 1.73 GHz, 6 GB RAM, Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1, Avast! Free Antivirus, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (free version) and Sandboxie (paid version).
