Vodafone spreading malware?


The Inquirer is reporting that Vodafone is selling phone with some nasty surprises onboard. Apparently an HTC Magic was loaded with the Conficker worm, a Mariposa bot client and a Lineage password divulger. The applications are not native to Android and will not affect the phone, however when you hook it up to your PC thats when the real problem starts.

A representative of Panda Security was first to discover the undesirables and was quick to act and recommends that anyone with an HTC phone scans their memory card with some up to date anti-virus software. Vodafone has yet to comment on the issue.
