Olympus Stylus Tough 6010 ships with Malware

Posted in Cameras by Conner Flynn on June 10th, 2010

This kind of issue is becoming more common, sadly. Olympus has issued a warning to those who recently purchased the Stylus Tough 6010 shockproof and waterproof camera. About 1700 of these cameras shipped with malware on its internal XD cards.

The camera itself is fine, but the malware on the XD card uses the autorun feature on your PC to launch itself and possibly infect your computer. If you are unsure whether you have an affected camera, you can enter the serial number on the company’s website. (Which is Japanese)

More Mac Malware Spotted

First Mac botnet detected by SymantecI don’t want to hate on Macs and the nerds that love them, but they’ve always defended their overpriced Macs with stuff like “we don’t get malware”. And for a while they were right, simply because in pure numbers Macs weren’t worth attacking compared to PCs, because most people were using PCs. Well, now that more people are using Macs these days, we see a rise in Malware as well. So they won’t be able to use that old gem anymore.

The numbers of attacks on the Mac OS X is growing. While it’s still extremely small compared to the figures for PCs, the figures are there and they’re growing. The latest threat is Puper, which is a Trojan disguised as a video program for the fictional MacCinema system on OS X. Researchers at McAfee Avert Labs have determined that the attack is staged to look like a disk image, which will launch an installer application for the non-existent software. Once installed, the user’s computer is infected with a malicious script file called AdobeFlash, which will launch itself every five hours while attempting to download and launch other malware on the system.

Photo frame with viruses sold at major Retailers
Has there been a week recently when China-made products have not been in the news? Normally it’s tainted food and toxic lead. Now it’s a malicious virus-infected digital photo frame. Computer Associates identified it as Mocmex , “a nasty worm that has a great deal of intelligence” and “a nuclear bomb of malware”.

It’s a malicious self-propagated worm that has been steadily spreading worldwide with variants of over 67,500 kinds. That’s cause for some concern. It was first identified as a Trojan horse that collected passwords from online games, but after further study, it’s able to get around more than a hundred antivirus vendors as well as Windows security layers. Now it could potentially collect personal and private data.
