    This is not new, there were a batch of MP3 players that came with viruses in them and another batch of external hard drives that had the same problem. Quality Chinese Q&A at work as that's where it was found to be introduced in both occasions.

    Yea, your machine ends up as a CNC hub rather than a drone and you don't have a plethora of software available to help root it out, better is a matter of opinion. Different is more accurate.
