    'The US electrical retail giant said that a "limited number" of the
    LCD panels were "contaminated with a computer virus during the
    manufacturing process'

    'Best Buy also kept quiet on details of the malware that latches onto
    Windows operating systems, other than to say that it was an "older
    virus... easily identified and removed by current anti-virus software"'

    Except your manufacturing process didn't detect it. What
    imdemnification does the suppliers of the software give Best Buy
    against getting sued by its own customers for damage caused.
