Raspberry Pi Foundation Asked to Install Malware for money

 

The Raspberry Pi Foundation have been asked to Install Malware on their devices for money, which thankfully has been declined by the foundation.

While paying for app installations of pre-built systems is not exactly something that is uncommon, with anti-virus software and other applications being added to pre-built systems almost as long as PCs have existed. While some of these apps can be useful to end users, there are others that can be very damaging or can even leave PCs insecure, with apps like Superfish adware being infamous among these apps.   

 

 

With system builders and other companies continually wanting to increase their profits, including additional software alongside their systems is a great way to do this, as it doesn't cost them much money to implement. 

What companies need to take great care with is the type of applications that they allow on their systems, as far too often we see harmful software included in their systems by default, with little or no options for removal.
