In a way, yes they can. If the movie has DRM and (for example) Media player connects to a website to get the DRM authentication, that website can download rubbish to your PC. Seen it done before with pr0n movies :ninja:

I second Kalkal's assertion. I've never seen executable code embedded in an AVI or MPEG file in such a way that it can be arbitrarily executed (steganographic tech doesn't count, obviously, since you have to extract the binary first).

Avoid WMA/WMV files, and it should go without saying to avoid anything using any kind of DRM, and you should be fine.
