Infecting the KaZaA network?

I just found out a folder named "My shared folder" under the KaZaA
Inside "My shared folder" there were various KaZaA installshield
packages (exe files).
Now, the people at FastTrack promotes their engine as a distributed way
to send files to end users. This is seen whe you download KaZaA, you get
a little exe (500 k) that downloads the full KaZaA client from one of
its users, I would guess, from the "My shared folder".
What happens if I infect the files under "My shared folder" with a virii
or some trojan, every user that gets their KaZaA client from my computer
gets screwed, right? And then, the victim himself will be sharing the
KaZaA client infected to new victims.
Just wondering... Have a nice day!!
