Here's an interesting one. Peripherals manufacturer I-O Data has shipped a series of nice-looking portable hard drives in the 40GB to 120GB range - carrying the Backdoor.Win32.Tompai trojan on them.

You would think Sony's mistake would wake manufacturers up.

Sony's release was intentional; at least the others are (most likely) mistakes.
