    New Google Market (Google Play) App Sent Spam to e-mail Contacts

    Bought Galaxy Tab and SGS-II as package from AT&T. Downloaded several free APPs from Google Market/Play. Two days later, S-II sent out random e-mails with no subject line to many of my contacts in MSN e-mail contact list. Home computer and Galaxy Tab were both off when this occured, so convinced it happened from S-II. Called AT&T - they blamed Samsung. Called Samsung - they blamed Google (Samsung Tech rep said same thing happened to her that same morning). Tried to call Google - automated recall tool promised to call me back five different times - never got a call.

    Here is copy/paste of e-mail with hyperlink disabled:

    So - is this a known problem? Is this a new breakout of 2010 Spam virus from Japan?

    Interim fix - deleted all e-mail accounts and free apps from S-II. Sent e-mail appology to all affected contacts.
    Better Fix - installed McAfee All Access protection - ran scan and discovered 5 APPS that were causing bogus use of contact list (they were all free games - got what I paid for - :-(
    Not sure if any of these APPs was the culprit....

    Recommendations? Fixes?

    Please share the name of the apps.

    Apps on market can be made by anyone. Never encountered this problem before.
