Best Buy Co. Inc. sold digital picture frames during the holidays that harbored malicious code able to spread to any connected Windows PC, the big box retailer has confirmed. It is not recalling the frames, however.
What Best Buy called "a limited number" of the 10.4-in. digital frames sold under its in-house Insignia brand were "contaminated with a computer virus during the manufacturing process," according to a notice posted on the Insignia site last weekend. The frame -- which went by the part number NS-DPF10A -- has been discontinued, and all remaining inventory pulled, Best Buy added.
But that didn't happen until after some of pre-infected frames were sold to customers.
Glad I did n't get the mother-inlaw that gift ..........
