S60 Trojan Horse On The Loose

Thru Engadget Mobile, I found out that there is a trojan horse program out there that sends messages to a premium SMS number in the background, thus costing you a ton of money. According to the Unwired View article, this is the first time that a particular trojan horse was written specifically for S60 devices. S60 is the operating system used in the higher-end Nokia smartphones, such as the Nseries and Eseries devices.

I do a detailed analysis of how this happens and what you can do about it over at the See into S60 blog.
