New Seagate hard drives infected with virus

Seagate hard driveIf you bought a Seagate hard drive in the past few months, you might be in for a surprise.

Seems as though a virus managed to find its way onto a line of hard drives earlier in the year, with a small percentage of Maxtor Basics Personal Storage 3200 drives being infected and released for purchase during August of 2007.

The Chinese virus is known as "virus.win32.autorun.ah" and will find your online game passwords and send them to a private server. Some of the affected games include QQ, WSGame, AskTao and Blizzard’s famous World of Warcraft.

If you happen to have bought a Maxtor Basics Personal Storage 3200 hard drive after August 2007 then contact Seagate support as soon as possible so they can check if your drive is one of those affected by the virus.
