Strange File origins

I have a question about the origin of strange links posted on the site. The first link has been posted days ago and that link was remixed by user name nihal. The second link I saw this morning and it was posted by user named Muzik. The name of file was also broken. It's like they are coming from another single cell software. I concluded this by following the names on a site. Or the site generates heat by it self, wich is a little bit like ghost story, or there is a third party that somehow bugs the site.
I am starting to think that those files contain a virus. You all probably know that pictures can contain virus so I think its possible for the files to.
I have a strange feeling that someone has hacked my device. So is anyone able to trace down this links. And check what heppend actually. I know that now sites can generate files automatically trough system automation settings. I want to know is the broken file name caustic file is actually a virus.

These are the threads Amel is

These are the threads Amel is talking about. http://www.singlecellsoftware.com/node/18077

The files are fine. They work as caustic files, and they look just like caustic files in a hex viewer. I'm pretty sure I've seen both nihal and Muzik post before, although Muzik's track page seems not to show his posts, and YOU'VE talked to nihal before. It's just someone sharing their music. Don't be so dang scared all the time.

Also... Pictures can't

Also... Pictures can't contain viruses. Well they could but you'd need to encode a virus in the image somehow and then have an executable program decode it which would need to be run on the host machine... At that point there's no point of having a virus encoded in an inert file type as you may as well have just run a virus.

The only file types that could reasonably contain a virus need to be not natively inert, but picture and sound files for example do not natively execute code. So although you could in theory hold code in them, you'd need an entire executable app to extract said code.

Etc etc

Thanks guys, I was thinking

Thanks guys, I was thinking that something went wrong with my account. Essentially it was a browser problem. Some kind of safety browsing mode was set. Every time I tap on a file it was showing that page is not safe. That's it. But it was a browser bug. I know because I downloaded Dolphin browser iand everything works as usual now. However thanks.

A virus comes from something

A virus comes from something executable. Unless you explicitly run things and those things are not getting spoofed by yyour OS (trojan) that is the first line of virus defense. Infact this is what anti viruses do, they read the file's binary and determines if it can be executed first, then determines if the file is a system file that could be run with the OS without your permission (backdoor).

And... just because a file has a .caustic extension doesn't mean it's a Caustic file, as we all know file extensions are a breeze to change.

Moral of the story, since you can change extensions, the assholes are betting you double click or somehow execute said file, then the assholes take your life for a free ride.

I know what you saying mike,

I know what you saying mike, so if you go on track of this guy, he has only these two posts in a 2 years and Eleven days. He doesn't name his tracks , or he adds the description to them, he doesn't post anything. That's why I am starting to think that those files are coming from some type of backtracking. I am thinking also that the files are not made by Caustic, but rather some type of caustic Remote. That's what I want to say. Thinking about this type of stuff is bad thing. But I am going to say this anyway. This files are probably the robots. And if the guy doesn't answer on this crazy assumption, then my words are true.

Amel, I get what you are

Amel, I get what you are saying and I will monitor it. :) The factr is, I ran those both in hex editors as well and it's first RIFF tag is RACK and that is a straight up .caustic file.

No, there are NO adds on this

No, there are NO adds on this site ever.

There are so many crack spoof sites these days because of the wretched people (crimninals) in this world.

If you want to make sure you arer gcoming straight to this REAL site, you have to bookmark OR enter this sites URL yourself.

This site has been around so long and has offered downloads, that these other sites are frauds and fakes.
