One Minnesota family contacted their local TV news crew after powering up Dad’s laptop, and trying to upload their daughter’s fresh-minted pictures. No sooner had they pulled the kid’s eye views up, when dad Jeff Tapper says his antivirus software alerted him that there were two viruses on the camera.
In other words – not on his computer. News station WCCO put in calls to Fisher-Price only to be told the office is closed for the holidays, but the Tappers have found they’re not the first to have this problem. Other parents have put out the warning in reviews on Amazon, over at Consumer Reports and other spots around the Web.
It doesn’t seem to be a United States-specific problem, as parents around the world are making the reports, nor is there one specific virus to beware of as parents are reporting different warnings from their anti-virus software.
There’s no recall out yet, but is anyone surprised that these things were made in China?
