3 Symbian trojans discovered in 1 week

Kaspersky Labs discovered 3 insidious, money-hungry trojans infesting the Symbian OS last week.

When downlaoded and, I guess, installed, the trojans automatically send text messages to a premium-rate number in Russia without victim interaction, with each call costing around $7 USD.

Gee, I guess it is not only Windows OSs that have mailware directed at it!

Come to think of it, if the mobile phone market is around 1 billion yearly, isn't it a juicy target for malware writers?
