Default HP switches ships with malware installed

Gotta just love HP.

Their HP ProCurve 5400 zl Switchs have malware installed on the compact flash cards.

Yeah it can happen to big tier-1 brands. They outsource some components (such as the cf flash card in this case) to some vendor and it opens up exposure to some prank or industrial espionage. Not long ago a similar thing happened to Dell....but was reginally localized (some deliveries in the UK...not really the rest of the world).
