Yes.
If you attempt to download any mp3, make sure, you scan every single downloaded file.
I assume, we're talking about legal downloads?:D

Scan with your antivirus program.
I'm not going to deal with your legal questions.
Don't ask :)

    attaching a virus to an mp3 is possible images, ect.... the best thing you can do is run scans.  any download of music that dont allow pay would violate the rules on CH
