    I've made an announcement about this on another forum site, but I figured I'll cross post it here so that you guys can become aware of this, too. Below is a quick copy&paste from my announcement on iPod Touch Fans (not linked; I don't want to make this post look like an ad, if moderators here feel the need to link it, please feel free to edit the post).

    It has come to our attention that someone is trying to exploit people's unwillingness to pay for the $20 app upgrade by releasing a fake source claiming to be 1.1.3 apps upgrade for 1.1.2.

    The source is:
    dav.team.apps.googlepages.com/repo.xml

    DO NOT INSTALL THIS SOURCE!!

    It will uninstall these applications from your unit:
    Official Apps:
    YouTube
    MobileMusicPlayer (Music + Video)
    Preference
    MobileSafari
    Calculator

    Unofficial Apps:
    SSH
    Customize
    SIP-VoIP

    When attempting to Uninstall this app (After you've installed it), it will attempt to uninstall SIP-VoIP

    When attempting to Update this app (After you've installed it, and they update a version number), it will attempt to uninstall SIP-VoIP and then copy a fake SIP-VoIP application (perhaps another virus).

    DO NOT INSTALL THE SOURCE. And don't install any other untrusted sources, too!
