I just created a new folder on my computer and transferred about two hundred picture I had stored on my mobile phone. I have just opened the folder to delete the crap I don't want to keep. To my astonishment I found around 100 of the pictures were not taken by me and were for the most part very small and low quality png files of about 90 pixels and others were tiny JPG pictures covering a range of unrelated people, places and things. Looking at the details of the files they were all taken at the same time on the 10th Nov 2013 at 11.53 am, some are jpg files taken with a 35m camera and some are vector images of computer buttons you might use when setting up a web page. I don't own a 35m camera. I have no idea how these images got on my phone. I know it was a new folder as the computer wont allow you to use the a name for a folder that already exists. The 35m jpg seem to be news related in some way. There is a picture of the pope, tanks, basket ball, they are all very tiny images, there is also head and shoulders shots of people I don't recognize.

Has this happened to anybody else? My phone is an HTC Desire.

This can Probably the Album Art of your Music or it can be some virus...

Think back and try to remember where you attached your cellphone the last time.

Even when we're not using our phones, they are still sending and receiving data. MWR's kit counted 35,000 packets flowing in and out of the phone in just 45 minutes when it wasn't in use.
