  • Battery Charger may contain malicious code

    Most of the electric items we buy these days comes with a software CD but be cautious before you insert that disc into your drive because such program may not be safe. According to Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT), the software that comes with a USB battery charger made by Energizer contains malicious code that can provide an attack with complete access to Windows PCs.

          Its a nightmare that this goes on

          iPhones were said to have a malicious code built in which tracks your every move. Surely this is a invasion of privacy:

            But it turned out Apple didn't intend to do that and was corrected in a software update which users probably have already downloaded to their iPhone via iTunes.

            But in regards to the USB charging battery having malicious code, wow! lol. Isn't technology complicated? lol. I have to agree with the notion of why we can't just enjoy technology without all the drama of malware .
