OTOH these massive exploits these days were considered very unlikely some
time ago. And a vectors in remains a vector in, and most likely becomes
a common attack vector. Your point because it is not widely used _now_,
it is safe, is just ridiculous.
True enough but with the following difference: By specification, to the best of my amateur knowledge,
the MP3 format does not permit executable content. Whereas Word and PDF files do.
