beaverdownunder writes "Sydneysider Darryl Mason bought a "new" portable hard drive from Dick Smith only to find that it was filled with pirated movies and potentially contained malware that has ruined crucial footage for his documentary.

The retailer has since admitted that it sells second hand hard drives as new, but in this instance forgot to wipe it clean.

The Minister for Fair Trading, Anthony Roberts, said he was "very concerned" with Dick Smith's actions and that the retailer may be liable for compensation under Australian consumer laws."
