Conficker Worm Discovered In Police Body Cameras

I have a brilliant idea! Let's pre-install a worm on police body cameras, that way we'll have video proof of the cops kicking our ass when they catch us. big grin

During testing and evaluation of the Martel Electronics product, Jarrett Pavao and Charles Auchinleck, discovered that multiple body cameras had been shipped to iPower preloaded with the Win32/Conficker.B!inf worm virus. When the camera was connected to a computer, iPower's antivirus software immediately caught the virus and quarantined it. However, if the computer did not have antivirus actively protecting the computer it would automatically run and start propagating itself through the network and internet.
