A computer virus that spreads through email.

You receive a virus attachment in an email. It's from your friend so you open it.

It installs a P2P service on your computer. It makes the screen go black. It says "Tell me your favorite music, or I will delete your computer!".

You type in your favorite music, it downloads it. It orders you to listen to it.

       // or I will delete your computer! // You'd be amazed the amount of people that say that their computer has been deleted.   

       I like the idea of receiving an attache though.

       I like the idea of a downloader being a virus... very intresting legally... setup with a torrent sites RSS add a few key words for auto downloading, that way its all out of your control. Then if a company/organisation appears and trys to sue.. it simply wasen't your fault it was a virus.
