"I do think that both Samsung and LG should grow up"
I don't. It put a smile on my face reading this story of corporate idiocy. It does reflect badly on LG, though. Not only did they get caught, but the "yield" seems to be less than five Samsung machines. Were they smarter, they'd have re-engineered Stuxnet and injected it to the control logic of Samsung washing machines, to cause them to over-speed when on the spin cycle, because (let's be honest here) that's exactly what Stuxnet was designed for. And after many thousands of warranty claims, Samsung would still be scratching their heads. If it ever came to light, the Israelis would get the blame.
And a side benefit would be that all the thousands of home-grown terrorists that the security services keep alluding to would be foiled in their attempts at enrichment, under Al Quaeda's "Spinning@Home" project.
