Virus in your car?


What apparantly happened was that TomTom accidentally included two Windows malware files on the TomTom GO910's hard drive Perlovga.a and Small.qp. While the device itself isn't infected, users have reported getting notifications from their antivirus products when they've connected the device to their PCs to do a backup.

The infected files are "copy.exe" and "host.exe" and they are located in the root of the hard drive of the GO910. Perlovga.a was discovered in June 2006 and Small.qp back in January of 2005, so they're not new in any way. F-Secure : News from the Lab
