ALDI 4-in-1 device spreads conficker

Date: 28 July 2011

Click here for printable version

Today we received reports that ALDI is selling a product, at least in Queensland that contains malware via its built-in hard disk drive. The malware is extremely old, with some of the malware being seen since in August 2008. This is fortunate in one sense that most systems should detect this malware if they have antivirus installed. The components of the malware is from the notorious Conficker, also known as Downadup.

If you have purchased one of these, it mightn't hurt to format the HDD in the 4-in-1 device as well as scan your computer with up-to-date anti-virus software.
