    Last night, I was checking my account via my SGSII, when the my data app said there was a new version, and directed me to the market (Play Store:P), and there was another app called ""MTC" by OJSC Mobile TeleSystems" which was in Russian. Per the Market, it is for a Russian telco. I didn't update this app as I have automatic updates turned off, I only updated my other app.
    I saw a few entries in XDA and nobody has been able to remove it. Anyone seen this app in their Market settings?

    Just got this article from someone at the T-Mo forums.

    Looks like the Droid 3 ran into this issue today. Google pulled it and it also may not be malicious.
