SimWorks discovers 52 new Symbian viruses

Posted on Wednesday, April 20 2005 @ 14:18:26 CEST by

SimWorks, specialised in Symbian security, reported to have found 52 new trojans for the Symbian platform in a single day. These malicious programs only affect Series 60 phones such as the Nokia 3650, 6600 and 6630.

The trojans appear to be hidden inside cracked versions of popular Symbian games and application.
SimWorks CEO Aaron Davidson says “This is a significant development as until now we've usually found mobile trojans two or three at a time at the most. It would be easy for a malware writer to create 1 trojan and give it 52 different names however this is not the case here where we have 52 separately cracked and infected applications. Somebody has gone to an awful lot of time and effort to turn these out”.
The company reports that it hasn't discovered any of these 52 trojans in the wild yet.
