Frustrating 3wplayers and Pr0n

Last night, I finished downloading Rush Hour 3. When I played it using mplayer, it prompted me to download 3wplayer. So I googled for W3player and found Perl source (look below for the link) for decrypting 3wplayer encrypted files into AVI files. I decrypted Rush Hour 3 file and it happened to be pr0n!!!

Wikipedia:
3wplayer is a rogue media player software application bundled with trojans that can infect computers running Microsoft Windows. It is designed to exploit users who download video files, instructing them to download and install the program in order to view the video.

Perl code to decode 3wplayer encoded video files: http://www.federicopistono.org/Futile_attempt_of_spreading_malware_3wPlayer_vs_perl_hackers
