Computer Viruses Rampant In Electronic Picture Frames

Here is the lead - "An insidious computer virus recently discovered on digital photo frames has been identified as a powerful new Trojan Horse from China that collects passwords for online games - and it's designers might have larger targets in mind." Can you believe it - viruses in those electronic picture frames. I thought is was a hoax till I read, via Imaging Insider, the entire story over at the San Francisco Chronicle's website right here.

It sees most of the infected frames came from Sam's Club and Best Buy. New reports involve frames sold at Target and Costco also. This is the real deal, the story was also reported on over at the Seattle Post Intelligencer and the Washington Post. The Internet Storm Center has a list of more such items harboring malicious malware too right here. Very Weird!!!

  1. Are you really surprised? If anyone is surprised has not been paying attention to the news and events coming out of China. There are quite a few people who believe that China is our friends but I am here to tell they are on a path to take us out. The stories are too numerous to list them out on this post, but if you remember there were two spies caught giving secret information about Boeing and National Defense information. This story was published on Feb 11, 2008. What about all the products that came from China that were killing our pets and poising our kids? How about their Human Rights records? This list can go on and on. Get ready for the love affair that the media will have over the Olympics that China is hosting. They will gush over how wonderful China is and how far their people have come economically, and China will do their best to paint that picture. But don’t be fooled. The USA needs to have the same policy towards China as we do have towards Cuba. Sorry this comment is so political in nature but I believe we do not see that China is really our enemy. You don’t have to take my word for it, just do a little research on your own.
