Cy Sperling Cy Sperling writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Cy Sperling (960158) writes "Some Seagate hard drives are shipping with a virus that will steal your passwords for online games and send them to China.



Seagate is warning that a "small number" of its Maxtor Basics Personal Storage 3200 hard drives recently shipped with the Virus.Win32.AutoRun.ah virus, malicious software that "searches for passwords for online games and sends them to a server located in China," according to a note posted on the Seagate Web site.


The virus scans the hard drive for password information on World of Warcraft as well as a number of Chinese games such as QQ, WSGame, and AskTao, Seagate said.
