    Got it.
    In this case Kaspersky lists websites that beaTunes tried to access. Kaspersky believes that these websites pose a threat when opened with a webbrowser.
    beaTunes is no webbrowser and never executes code found on a website. In fact: it does not even have that capability.
    Those websites were probably accessed by beaTunes while you were searching for lyrics. This may happen, because beaTunes lyrics lookup is really just a glorified we search.

    I hope this sufficiently explains what's going on and puts your mind at ease.
