"According to an email sent out by Asus, PC Advisor reports, the Eee
Box's 80GB hard drive has the recycled.exe virus files hidden in the
drive's D: partition. When the drive is opened, the virus activates and
attempts to infect the C: drive and an removable drives connected to the
system. According to Symantec, the malware is likely to be the
W32/Usbalex worm, which creates an autorun.inf file to trigger
recycled.exe from D:. Separately, we've been testing the Eee Box this
week, and discovered our review unit came loaded with the W32/Taterf
worm - aka W32.Gammima.AG, aka kavo.exe malware that sniffs out online
gaming usernames and passwords."
