Looks like Energizer needs to spiff up their internal procedures:

If you've bought the Energizer DUO USB battery charger, you might want to uninstall the software immediately. Why? Because it comes pre-loaded with a backdoor that can let someone remotely access your computer.

This is the scariest kind of security problem, because you tend to default to trusting software that comes from a reputable vendor.
