Virus on New Olympus Stylus Cameras

clock June 17, 2010 21:18 by author John


A malware infection can be found in the new Olympus Stylus Tough 6010 digital camera's internal memory card. The Olympus camera itself will not get damaged from the virus, but it will infect your Windows PC with an autorun worm. Once the camera is plugged into a Windows PC with a USB cable, then the virus is triggered to autorun. Not all of the Olympus Stylus cameras are infected, however there are over 1700 Olympus Stylus cameras on the market with the virus. This can be found by checking the serial number on the camera.


The Olympus Stylus Tough 6010 is known to be waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof but it is not virus proof.

Olympus has a Tough 6010 support page covering on how to handle the virus issue. There is also a removal process available for the virus. Make sure to use a translator for the page with Google Translator or Babblefish, as it is in Japanese.

Olympus Tough Stylus 6010 technical documentation for the virus:

"Use the products to all the inconvenience and said very sincerely sorry. Humbly apologize."

"When you connect the USB camera to a computer terminal, is operating the software for the computer virus may be automatically remove the virus is detected or below. The name of the virus detection software is different for each virus."
