Viruses planted in games for Windows Mobile dials premium-rate telephone services
Back in April we reported on how a virus planted by hackers in the game 3D Anti-Terrorist for Windows Mobile causes the infected phone to dial specific international phone numbers randomly, but now it looks like another game is doing the same thing. There are always some kind of malicious software created for the various kinds of mobile platforms out there, but the latest victim again is Windows Mobile. Although it may be sold and offered through legitimate sites geared towards mobile phones, the game PDA Poker Art is causing havoc for some handset owners once they look at their monthly bill. The game basically calls premium-rate telephone services in Somalia, Italy, and other countries – which of course will be one expensive bill for you at the end of your billing cycle. Thankfully, Microsoft is aware about the issue and looking into it as we speak, but owners should take note of these games now.
