US-based iPower Technologies has discovered that body cameras sold by Martel Electronics come pre-infected with the Conficker worm (Win32/Conficker.B!inf).
The specific line of body cameras iPower tested, is the same one sold to police forces around the US, used by street patrol officers and SWAT team members in their operations.
The model, Frontline Body Camera, is attached to an officer's chest and works by recording his activities on video, his location using a GPS tracker, and taking regular snapshots as images.

According to iPower's account, this is where they've spotted the infection.
