Phone Bill Sky High?

If you have a Nokia phone, and find strange charges for SMSs to Russia, you should probably install an anti-virus application for you Symbian powered SmartPhone, as an article over at The Register.
This appears to be proof that the malware creators have started to work in earnest on misbehaving codes for mobile devices. Although anti-virus programs have been around for a while, when they were first released, many people scoffed, and saw them simply as another income source for AV companies. Now, the twisted individuals who create viruses, trojans and other malicious code seem to have broadened their horizons. Sad news, but worth taking note of, I believe.
