Asus ships Eee Box with virus

Oops. Looks like the new Asus Eee Box mini desktop PC is shipping with a virus on the hard drive which Symantec identifies as the W32/Usbalex worm.

Asus isn’t hiding from the issue and admits that the Eee Box as in fact shipped with a virus but only models sold in Japan.

No word yet on how the virus may have gotten there to begin with.
