First SMS trojan targeting Android phones detected

The first malicious program targeting smartphones running Google's Android operating system has been detected, according to researchers at Kaspersky Lab. The SMS trojan, masquerading as a media player application, already has infected a number of mobile devices, Kaspersky said. Once installed on a user's phone, the trojan delivers text messages to premium rate numbers without the user's consent, resulting in money being transferred from a user's account to the cybercriminals. Right now, the trojan only affects Russian users and is not spreading in the Android Marketplace, but researchers expect to see more malware soon targeting Android phones. — AM
