TomTom infected with Trojans

TomTom admits that a number of its devices are infected with viruses. The viruses were shipped with the TomTom GO 910 model but do not affect the operation of the device, according to the manufacturers.

However upon connecting the device to a PC, anti-virus software on the computer immediately flags up two alerts identifying win32.Perlovga.A trojan and TR/Drop.Small.qp as being resident on the device.

The two viruses are found on brand new devices right out of the box!
