Submission + - Trojan pre-installed on Point&Shoot Video Camc

Bill Wood writes: We got the new Pure Digital product ' Point&Shoot Video Camcorder PSV-351' from Amazon around December 14th for Christmas. When we loaded it up to our PC to download the videos via USB, AntiVir Personal detected one of the files as a trojan. Symantec AV detected it as well on my laptop. Symantec identifies it as W32.Looked.P. I tried to email the infected file as RAR archive to puredigital support, and Google Mail prevented it from going out as it was detected as a virus laden file. The offending file is called 'View Your Files.exe' on the root directory of the device. AntiVir calls it TR/Philis.A
