Samsung Shipped Infected Digital Picture Frames

For the second year in a row, some of those digital photo frames lying under the Christmas tree may come with a nasty surprise.

Samsung says that CDs that shipped with many models of its digital photo frames may have included a malicious Trojan horse program that gives cyber criminals access to the PC.

The malicious software, known as W32.Sality.AE lies in the XP version of Samsung's Frame Manager 1.08 software, which ships with many other models of Samsung frames.

A malware reaches a host PC only if Frame Manager is loaded from the CD, which can convert the digital photo frame to a USB monitor. It doesn't affect Windows Vista users. W32.Sality.AE has been known in the security community since April and is detected by antivirus software.

CDs with malicious code may have also shipped with the digital photo frame models SPF-75H, SPF-76H, SPF-85H, SPF-85P, SPF-105P, Samsung wrote in an alert (pdf) it issued in late November.

Samsung recommends users to download and install the updated version of Frame Manager XP software available from the Download Center at Samsung.com.

Earlier this week, Amazon.com issued an alert saying the worm affects Amazon buyers of the SPF-85H 8-inch digital photo frames sold between October and December 2008 for about US$150.

The story was first reported by German publication PC Professionell earlier this month.

This is not the first time that viruses have shipped along side digital photo frames. Last year, retailer Best Buy Stores said it had sold digital picture frames that were contaminated with a computer virus. The digital picture frame was an in-house brand called Insignia, and that specific model with the virus was later discontinued by Best Buy.

and the setup process is explained clearly on the page.

1. Read the recent Roku blog published and it
is really interesting. The blog has all information about
the Roku device setup, Roku sign-in process, the top and best Roku
channels to watch your favorite programs. Found it easy to stream and activate my favorite channels on my streaming
device when I read this blog.

I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

To troubleshoot the Roku Activation Code not working error you just
have to power off the device. Switch it off completely and get it back up again to apply the reset process.
To soft reset the Roku, unplug it first from the electric panel.
Then connect it back again and the device should be working.

Sometimes, the device does not work if your software is not
updated either. Go to system from under the settings menu and look for system update.
Thereafter, click on the check now button to get any software updated into the Roku.
For any queries call our backend team.

I didn’t know that such a box existed with Roku and now I am very excited to learn what this hybrid
box has to offer. This article was very informative and also has easy to follow steps that will help
first timers set up their Roku players. In addition to all this, there are some interesting Spanish channels available
here which you can add to your Roku without spending too
much money. If you are Colombian, then there is another list especially for you folks.
