McDonald’s Spreads Malware

It’s really interesting when as many as 10,000 computers get infected with Malware on behalf of one of the largest food distributors in the world. It’s an example of a high tech scheme using a very low-tech distribution method.
http://www.theregister.co.uk/2006/10/16/mcd_spyware_mp3_recall/

McDonalds Japan has launched a recall after discovering that MP3 players it offered as a prize were loaded with a particularly nasty strain of malware. Up to 10,000 people might have been exposed to the problem after claiming a Flash MP3 player pre-loaded with ten tunes and a variant of the QQpass spyware Trojan…(People were) exposed to spyware code programmed to transmit their web passwords and other sensitive information to hackers.

If Identity Thieves can get into the inner workings of a McDonald’s promotion (in Japan or anywhere else), don’t you think it’s time you take some steps to keep them out of your personal information, and create a plan, just in case your information gets stolen?
