Default IMPORTANT READ: This affects the D3 (malware related)

Reference: http://www.androidpolice.com/2011/03...-more-details/

The D3 does not have the Market, but since it's Android 2.1 it is still affected by this vulnerability. If you installed an infected apk, your device could be affected without you realizing it. Android 2.2 and below is affected, allegedly.

Hopefully Cowon will release a patch soon to plug up this security hole. In the meantime -- if you have adb access you can plug this up manually. See the details here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=977154

This is really nasty stuff -- My device is coming on Friday and, if I can get a ROM working, this patch will definitely be added.
