if I were using limewire years ago and used it for music downloading. How likely is it to download malware that changes p2p settings or your sharing folder to make private files available on the limewire network. Is this likely that there is a malware that will do that or for me to catch downloading music
It's impossible to give an accurate answer to the question you ask. All I can say, is that few years back, Limewire was a program that was often found on computers that were infected with Malware, so there is at least the possibility, that if you were a frequent user of the Limewire Network, your computer may have been compromised in the way you suggest.
To give an accurate answer it would need someone to analyse your entire Limewire setup, looking at file and folder permissions and a whole lot of other things as well. Even then you could never be 100% sure.
That's why our recommendation is that people do not use P2P programs.
