ShootMe App works on T-Mobile MT3G Slide, security hole apparent?

Remember back when the HTC EVO 4G was released and people realized that the ShootMe application (an app for taking screenshots on your Android phone) worked on phones without root privileges?  Well, the reason the app worked was because of a security hole in HTC's Sense that has since been fixed, but was thought to be unique to Sprint.  Today it has become clear that the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G Slide also has the ability to run the app, and hence it appears might have the same security hole as the EVO 4G (before it was patched).  The issue was discovered when several people over at Phandroid's forums were comparing speed test results and one member asked how to grab the screen shot.  Any MT3G Slide owners getting concerned?
