14 October 2008 @ 8:34Oops! ASUS ships Eee Box with worm
ASUS has issued a recall on the Eee Box PCs that were sold in Japan after they were found to contain the worm called recycled.exe. Once opened, the virus will be activated and copy itself to the C drive as well as any other removable or USB drives. The affected computer will become slow and it may download more harmful malware programs from the internet.
This is very unfortunate, but it seems as though most computer and electronics manufacturers have had to deal with this sort of problem before.
