Oh wow, this is a nasty one!

Malware inserted on PC production lines, says study

Cybercriminals have opened a new front in their battle to infect computers with malware - PC production lines.

Several new computers have been found carrying malware installed in the factory, suggests a Microsoft study.

One virus called Nitol found by Microsoft steals personal details to help criminals plunder online bank accounts.

Microsoft won permission from a US court to tackle the network of hijacked PCs made from Nitol-infected computers..........

You can't trust anyone these days. Still, Microsoft had it coming for relying on third-world workers and putting Americans and Europeans out of work
