Digital Picture Frames Contain New Trojan Virus

A computer security vendor has identified a new data-stealing Trojan Horse virus coming from different brands of digital photo frames made in China. The Mocmex virus infects PCs when connected to the digital frames sold at Best Buy, Costco, Target and Sam's Club stores. The virus is programmed to steal passwords for online games. But Computer Associates has analyzed Mocmex and found it can do more damage to PCs because it is immune from anti-virus software from more than 100 security vendors and can penetrate firewalls of the Microsoft Windows operating system. It is believed that Mocmex can capture something and leave no traces. (AllHeadlineNews 19Feb08)

AND ... If you got it from the MIL - it probably came from Costco. Be Careful ...
