Would sir like spyware with that?

October 16, 2006

McDonalds Japan are in the news today after having to recall 10,000 MP3 players it gave away. The Flash based MP3 player came loaded with ten tunes and a particularly nasty piece of malware QQpass Trojan.

The spyware contains code designed to log keystrokes and passwords and transmit them to hackers. This could be due to the machine which loaded the music on to the players being contaminated.

Wonder if they’ll let you super-size it??
