Attention: owners of the Droid 2 and Droid X. Your smartphone may have a baffling security hole that allows voice commands to be issued even while the phone is locked and, ostensibly, off. BGR reports that, while locked, commands can be issued to the Droid by pressing the search softkey for four seconds and next issuing a voice command.

Droid Life reports that the same flaw is also evident on the Droid X. This issue appears to only hit phones with Android 2.2 and MotoBlur. Once again, manufacturer UIs muck everything up.
