    Didn't this happen before with another company over a year ago?

    Yep, 2 or 3 more last year.

    My question is how they get in there!? Surely they go through some sort of checking the files on the disc before releasing?

    Probably the CD gets outsourced to X and those outsource the installer package for driver Y to company Z. Plenty of hands that stuff goes through. Plus, I doubt that they check the CD for anything if it 'works'.

    The one i knew about involved a pissed off employee that put the virus on the picture frame itself not the CD included. He ran the machine that pre-programmed the frames and loaded the virus that way.

    Those digital picture frames are just a novelty in my opinion. Not worth the money.
