Virus on Aisle-5 ?

ALDI in some overseas stores was found to have a virus infected Hard Drive for sale.
Kaspersky Labs discovered the virus Conflicker worm, which prompted a ALDI recall.
This has happened to ALDI in 2007, and to other computer manufacturer's like Sony.

When you buy any new product that has software media, always scan the media and your system after installs.  See more details on the current ALDI Hard Drives:
