"The United States Computer Emergency Response Team (US-CERT) has warned
that the software included in the Energizer DUO USB battery charger contains
a backdoor that allows unauthorized remote system access."
Don't we have enough USB powered gadgets, and why does it need a program?
I have an AC powered Radio Shack battery charger that can charge 4 or 2
Ni-Cads or NiMhs, either AA or AAAs, or 2 AAs and 2 AAAs at the same time.
Not sold anymore.
How to fix if you have one.
So they stop selling the battery charger, which has no problem, for the sole
reason that the software which doesn't come with it and has to be downloaded
seperately has a trojan.
Makes perfect sense.
