April 21, 2010: The Bunny Is Infected

Energizer has confirmed that their DUO USB battery charger installs Arucer.dll on computers it's connected to. This file is a back door, allowing unauthorized access to the system. Once in, the invader can pretty much do anything they want. The full story is here.

Let's think about this. A USB battery charger opens your computer up to attacks. Does this sound like an Illuminati plot to anyone else? No? Good; the OMCLs are working just fine.
