3,000 tainted microSD cards to be replaced by Vodafone Spain

Last week Vodafone Spain announced it had determined the microSD card to be the cause of some crazy activity on their HTC Magic. When this had first surfaced, Vodafone Spain said that it was an isolated incident and only affected the one device in the UK. (And we might have even scoffed a bit at Panda Security possibly crying wolf.)

But over a rather short period of time we have seen that number jump from 1 card to 3,000 cards now. While they have admitted that they are replacing these due to infection, and not just as a precaution, other details around this have been kept rather secret. Is it really just 3,000 cards, or will we be posting an update next week that it has grown to over 10,000? [Engadet via Movil Zona]

  • surely just reformatting the memory card would also solve the problems, yes you would loose all your data but so will handing it in for replacement.
  • The issue is that once you have placed your phone in mass storage mode attached to a windows computer, it's too late. Potential huge problem in the works.
