Olympus Cameras Infected with Worm
Nearly 2,000 Olympus Stylus Tough 6010 digital cameras have shipped with a worm.
Once the card is inserted into a Windows computer via a USB port the worm spreads if the autorun feature is turned on or if the application is accessed.
Olympus has offered its apologies and has created a website that allows customers to check the serial number of their cameras against the malware infected list.
This is not the only such incident of a microSD card being infected. In March, Panda Security discovered three malware programs loaded on the microSD card of a recently purchased HTC Magic phone that belonged to a Panda employee.
