Even mobile phones are not spared this time. Technewsworld reports of a new Trojon that could infect phones based on the Windows Mobile OS. The virus could spread via the user’s PC to the phone via Activesync connection. This Trojon has the ability to send out premium SMSes chalking huge bills to the poor victim. “This latest virus represents a natural progression for virus writers, who are constantly seeking to extend their reach by spreading infections via as many platforms as possible,” said David Emm, a senior technology consultant at Kaspersky Lab. “One thing’s for sure — RedBrowser may be the first of its kind, but it certainly won’t be the last.”
