It seems Overpeer, the company hired by the RIAA to flood peer-to-peer networks with bogus files may now be infecting these files with Spyware. This is possible because of a security hole in the DRM (Digital Rights Management) software used by Microsoft in the latest version of the Windows Media Player. It seems the folks at Overpeer are taking a "they get what they deserve" attitude regarding any damage or problems caused by their tactics.

There is currently much discussion going on at several sites talking about this story, however it is still unclear as to whether Overpeer is actually doing this at the behest of the RIAA, and if so, whether it is legal.
