A batch of digital media players sold by a Dutch importer over the holidays appear to have been infected with a nasty stocking stuffer -- a worm.

One user reportedly discovered the worm, Worm.Win32.Fujack.aa, after opening the Victory LT-200, a 512 MB USB media player sold by Victory Nederland, wrote Roel Schouwenberg, a senior research engineer, for Kaspersky Lab, on a company blog.

At least one other variant of the Fujack worm has been observed to spread other programs that can steal passwords for online games, according to information previously published by Kaspersky.

Makes it sound like he opened the box and there was a worm crawling around on his media player. :)

(I wonder what it looks like) :)
