Dell fail to renew there Backup & Recovery Domain name
A web address used by recovery software on Dell PCs was taken over by a third-party after a contractor apparently failed to renew it.
Dell’s software checks in with the domain periodically, so whoever snapped it up could use it to distribute malware.
Security expert believed there was a possibility that this had happened.
However, Dell says no malware was transferred.
Dell’s Backup and Recovery Application software is installed by default on Dell PCs and allows users to restore their computers to factory settings, in the event of problems.
