Sophos, an anti-virus maker, has warned of a trojan horse for Nokia Series 60 smartphones. The virus is dubbed Mosqit-A and appears to be a hacked version of the Mosquitos game. Instead of simply being a hacked game, the application sends text messages to premium rate numbers. To install the application you must agree to several warning messages. The file has been found on several P2P file trading networks in addition to websites.
