Maxtor drives contain password-stealing Trojans
Seagate Technology LLC has shipped Maxtor disk drives that contain Trojan horses that upload data to a pair of Chinese Web sites, the Taiwanese government's security service warned this weekend.

The Investigation Bureau, a part of the Ministry of Justice that's responsible for both internal security and foreign threats, said it suspected mainland China's authorities were responsible for planting the malware on the drives at the factory. "The bureau said that the method of attack was unusual, adding that it suspected Chinese authorities were involved," a story posted by the English-language Taipei Times reported Sunday. "Sensitive information may have already been intercepted by Beijing through the two Web sites, the bureau said."

Seagate confirmed today that some Maxtor Basics 3200 drives were infected out of the box, but the company said it had no proof that the Chinese government was involved. ...

As if lead poisening and sneaking subs into military training excercises wasn't enough. I'm beginning to think China is trying to wage some war against us in secret. Lol.

"identified the infected drives as 500GB models..."

Wow. I'm glad I decided to go with WesternDigital this time around. I was looking at the 500GB models trying to decide which one to get. WD won in my mind only because they are quieter drives.

Seagate drives are indeed reliable. Slightly moreso than WD so I'm told. Which is why my decision was so hard between the two brands.

"Of the 1,800... 1,500 have been removed from the sales channel."
Nice. Am very disappointed that Seagate aren't recalling the sold ones tho.

I doubt they'll do business with the guys that infected them again so this will probably be a once only scare.

Actually, some of the links in the very last paragraph of the article,"This is not the first time that the government of mainland China -- the People's Republic of China -- has been accused of cyberspying or other computer hacks and attacks. Two months ago, it was fingered for hacks on U.S. military networks, and in May a U.S. Defense Department report said that China has beefed up its own armed forces' first-strike cyberattack capabilities."

Would be quite interesting to look into.

I see that Maxtor drives were bought out by Seagate. Many people considered a very built drive, though the one I have, has lasted for years.
