I hope others don't take up that particular habit. I'd really hate to give up my HP lappy. They could easily sneak that in on one of the updates. Nice.
Given the bad press Samsung is doing, if any others were thinking about it, they are probably thinking twice now.
A hacker is a hacker, even if the hacker's name is "Samsung". That's pretty disgusting.
I think Samsung took the "Hire a hacker" a step too far.
Worse than the Sony rootkit debacle, if true. I wouldn't buy any Samsung products if this is independently corroborated. I suspect it is true, but at the moment it is from just one source.
I had forgotten about that one! Thanks for a timely reminder.
I'm sure if other companies were looked at some of the same would be found, they just ain't been caught yet.
The company that found it routinely scans computers from different manufacturers. But unless you scan yours with a good root kit killer, I guess we cannot be sure.
