    Configuring some system sounds yesterday, came across http://www.f-secure.com/virus-info/v-pics/netsky_d.wav and found that it was from a worm that played the sound linked to at a certain date/time in 2004. (Made for rather easy identification of the infection.)
    "Well, cool!" I thought, (being a bit immature) and it got me to wondering: How many worm/virus/spyware infections are there that play their own distinctive noises? Anybody heard anything like that before? A forum search/Google search only reveals that one.
    I now have it set to play at startup.

    Nobody would know precisely how many malware are there that can play sound but I have heard of a joke program that play its own sound every 30 seconds until you remove it and it is a big fun :D :D
