TomTom 910s Hit With Virus

By D Dunbar in GPS. January 29, 2007

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.

TomTom's response

"It has come to our attention that a small, isolated number of TomTom GO 910s, produced between September and November 2006, may be infected with a virus. The virus is qualified as low risk and can be removed safely with virus scanning software. Appropriate actions have been taken to make sure this is prevented from happening again in the future.

Affected devices

It has been confirmed that a small number of TomTom GO 910 devices, produced between September and November 2006, and shipped with software version 6.51, may be infected with a virus.

Known risks

The viruses that were detected present an extremely low risk to customers' computers or the TomTom GO 910. To date, no cases of problems caused by the viruses are known."
