Best Buy gets framed

If you were the recipient of a new Insignia digital picture frame for the holidays, you may have gotten an extra bonus with your gift.

Turns out the 10.4-inch Insignia model (NS-DPF10A), which was available at Best Buy, included a virus that could allow the frame to infect Windows-based PCs via its USB connection. Insignia says most anti-virus programs should automatically detect and clean the virus, but if it were me, I don't reckon I would take the chance.

Insignia -- which is Best Buy's store brand -- issued a statement that assured customers that the "situation is not characteristic of Insignia products," which I guess means their line-up of home theater equipment and computer speakers should be virus-free. Whew!
