    G'day Forum:

    For the last two or three days a rectangular "icon" has appeared (always) on the lock screen and the home screen, behind the shortcuts, of my Verizon Droid Charge. It reads "See today's deal. Don't worry, we'll be careful with your email address." It doesn't do anything - you can't select or click on it. Have I been hacked? Anyone else seen this? How do I get rid of it?

    If you've recently installed any apps, i would uninstall them and see if that fixes it. If it doesnt try factory reset.

    Thanks, http://www.droidforums.net/forum/members/128100.html. I'll give that a try. I suppose I'd be surprised and disappointed if the intrusion came from an installed ap, as I have only installed aps from Market, and the last few I've installed are The Wall Street Journal, Turner Classic Movies and eBay!
