Submission + - Is you Galaxy S2 infected? (

M00NIE writes: "Apparently Samsung Galaxy S2 owners are noticing two suspect applications that are not removable and appear very suspect: "testfile" by sfukuda and "MTC" by OJSC Mobile TeleSystems. This post from one annoyed T-mobile user is corroborated by numerous other Samsung Galaxy S2 users. In my household we have 2 Galaxy S2 Skyrockets. Both had testfile and one had MTC. A reboot of one of the devices cleared the programs out, but the second device still shows the testfile application installed."
