Stoned.Angelina virus from 1994 found on new Medion Laptops
This is more a novelty than true threat, as this 13 year old virus is easily detected and most likely will not impact Vista booting or other operations. The German manufacturer has taken quick action to contain and remendy the issues.
Still, some key lessons include:
* OEM vendors always need to ensure a pristine and "malware free" environment
* Some old viruses that I felt were extinct may still be out there (this 13 year old thread had been taken out of "the Wild list")
* Accidents will happen (we're all human) and companies need to respond promptly as Medion did upon discovery
