Viruses are at home anywhere, but floppy disks are the most common means of transmitting them. Most companies that produce CD-ROMs or DVDs go out of their way to ensure that the disks are virus free. I have never heard of a hard drive being sold with a virus already on it, but anything is possible!

Floppy's used to be the most common but email and downloading files are almost undoubtedly now the most common
