Pocket PC Trojan

  1. As time goes on, its becoming more and more clear that viruses for all sorts of devices are on their way. Viruses for mobiles, viruses for PDAs.... Maybe even the televisions of the future will be susceptible to nasty code. Pocket PCs certainly are, it seems.

    The "Brandor" virus (which is less than 6K in size) generally arrives on your Pocket PC via e-mail. It then opens the ports it needs and sends your IP address to the virus's author (who is probably 48 and still a virgin.) Once that process is complete, your Pocket PC is "owned" and can be remotely controlled.

    "WinCE.Brador.a is a full-scale malicious program ready to go. Unlike proof of concept malware, Brador has a complete set of destructive functions typical for backdoors."

    I take back all my contentious bs about your editorializing:eek:

    Of course you run the risk of alienating all the 48 year-old TS virgins.;)

    Keep up the good work.:grinthumb
