And it Begins(More Viruses on Windows Mobile)

I was just counting down for this to happen. With the growth of Windows Mobile, bound to try breaking the rules and make some hacks to invade our devices.

This virus is a very minimal virus to say the least. It does not do much, but it does cost money. The virus comes in a game called "3D Anti-Terrorist"—ironic isn’t it. When the application is installed, it also brings along a Trojan virus that uses your device to call some friends.

The virus is said to call people at midnight and people from different countries, so you pay those high prices. I cannot get why someone would do that, but maybe they own a company that makes money from using our device to make a little profit.

This is interesting. I was driving home the other night, had my HD2 plugged into the aux port on my car as I wanted to test what it was like playing music in the car. It was fine on the way over (and the day before), but on the way home every time ‘ABC – The Look of Love’ played, the audio would keep muting, I’d look at the phone and see it was calling the last number on my call list! What the he**!

Thank god I noticed in time, because if the other party (poss work related) had heard me singing along to that song I’d have been screwed.

I had no idea why it was happening at first, so I switched the phone on and off and it just continued to happen.

Absolutely ridiculous bug… what’s the solution to this??

And OP – thanks for bringing your issue to everyone’s attention, you’ve reminded me to put international call blocking on my account and a credit limit. If all it takes is a cheesy 80s song to dial UK mobile numbers, god only knows what a cheesy 90s song will do next.

Did you experience this on your device yet? Are you going to try it?
