There are reports of two trojans (via the site http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry1276.htm), the win32.Perlovga.A Trojan and TR/Drop.Small.qp, found on a brand new TomTom 910 within the copy.exe and host.exe files. These have been confirmed present in TomTom 910s connected to a clean PC. If you bought one of these devices between September and November 2006 then you should run a virus check with your TomTom connected to your PC.
