Interesting! I wonder what that impacts that may have on the wholesale importing of prefab electronics from places like China.

Broken . . .
Don't buy those cheap USB "picture frames."
Those are a major culprit, ahtough anything with firmware (DVD/CD burners, motherboards, hard drives, video cards, and about anything else you put in a computer) can be infected. Not to mention phones, MP3 players, etc.
The fun bit -- this is stuff that your virus scan can't do anything about -- it can't scan firmware in attached devices.

There are some malware systems that cannot even be removed with Microsoft's standalone system sweeper.
Microsoft’s New Tool Goes After Viruses Buried Deep in the OS | Dice Blog Network
The systems this new tool cannot remove can only be removed by formatting and reinstalling the OS.
So windows users should get used to monthly reformats and reinstalls of everything.
