McDonald's Ships 10,000 Free McTrojan MP3 Players

Hello, I'll take 2 Big Macs, 4 McNuggets and a... McTrojan? Yes, you read that right. It seems that Japanese McDonald's restaurants, as part of a special promotion, were offering free MP3 players to their customers. The catch is that all these MP3 players (10000) came preloaded with a variant of the QQPass password stealing trojan, which apparently executed itself automatically when the poor soul who got it plugged it on his or her computer.

Here's the
official announcement from our friend Ronald. (Translated via Babelfish)

Oh yeah, I forgot, would you also like fries with that?
