    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 ..........

    It happens I guess , one of the big Harddrive makers had a trojan that stole gamer's keys .So much for quality control and a good lawyer would have a case for a class action suit.


    Pretty lame virus and an updated security program would delete it but giving a gift with a virus is not how I'd want to be remembered .
