An unknown quantity of Seagate's "Maxtor Basics Personal Storage 3200" drives sold after August 2007 were contaminated with AutoRun-AH malware by a manufacturing sub-contractor in China. "AutoRun-AH is a Trojan that searches for passwords to online games and sends them to a server located in China. It also disables anti-virus software."
