  • yes it is a very common way to get infected, it was romoured that movie companies paid to get viruses injected, but if you illegally download content then expect to get stung sometime. Scan what you get to reduce the possibiliy.

  • Yes. It might just be disguised as a pirate movie. You can also be put in jail for getting a virus.

  • Yes. You can get trojans virus', worms, malware, all from anything that is pirated - movies, games, music etc. Anything that is pirated, you are opening yourself up to infection. That is, of course, the least of your concerns - once law enforcement catches you, the fine and jail time are far worse than a computer virus.

  • I think it's possible to infect a computer from whatever you download.
