    IBM warns of malware on USB drives shipped to customers

    IBM has urged customers to destroy USB drives which shipped with some of its Storewize storage systems because they may contain malware.

    In a support advisory, the company has said an unspecified number of USB flash drives containing the Storewize initialisation tool for V3500, V3700, and V5000 Gen 1 systems are infected with malicious code.

    All infected USB flash drives were shipped with the number 01AC585, which IBM has told customers should be securely destroyed so it can't be reused.

    Affected drives were shipped with the following Storwize systems:

    IBM Storwize V3500 - 2071 models 02A and 10A
    IBM Storwize V3700 - 2072 models 12C, 24C, and 2DC
    IBM Storwize V5000 - 2077 models 12C and 24C
    IBM Storwize V5000 - 2078 models 12C and 24C

    If the serial number on a Storwize system starts with the characters 78D2, it isn't shouldn't be affected by the issue, the post said.
