Windows 7: Everything have viruses today

Everything have viruses today

Hi guys.

I just wanted to share a little story with you guys.

My mom's friend purchased a RCA Lyra Pearl MP3 player. He wanted me to put music on it. Simple enough. Two days ago, I was checking the MP3 Player itself and didn't find any sign of what size that MP3 Player was so I plugged it on my Win7 PC.

Upon inserting, my anti-virus NOD32 v4 detected a trojan (that runs on autorun)!! The MP3 player was NEW! It was gaming related according to the name given by NOD32. After that, I formated the drive to avoid further infection.

I mean, wow, really, they are really desperate for money now to put viruses on MP3 Players... I know that it's not the first time this happen. I remember reading about that in the past.

I received a new pc at work with a hard drive with a virus. They had the virus at the manufacturer and were cloning the drives. When I called, they already knew the problem existed.

OF COURSE, a keylogger.

I hope all members read this to remind them that infections come from every where not just the internet. That is why I keep preaching Multilayer protection is a must. Hardware and software security. Lebon 14 checked and caught it, there for removed it. I think many wouldn't ever check for it.

Can you get viruses using Webmail?
Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to get viruses just by opening an email in webmail (such as Yahoo Mail or GMail), or if you would have to download the attachments. I was under the impression that if there were any viruses in your webmail account, they couldn't harm your computer unless...
