Submission + - McDonald's MP3 players ship with trojan horse

franksands writes: Engadgenet has a story that the mp3 players given by McDonald's in Japan during a promotion were infected with a trojan horse used to steal user information from the QQ instant message program, very popular in Asia. From the article:
What do tubby teens, MP3 players, and grandma's scalded taint all have in common? That's right, the absolute attention of McDonald's legal. See, McDonald's and Coca-Cola recently teamed up in Japan to give away 10,000 self-branded MP3 players pre-loaded with 10 spankin' new tunes and... some delicious malware.
