A Trojan has emerged that targets Symbian smart phones and attempts to remove any anti-virus protection it finds. Its code also contains a message, intended for F-Secure which reads:
FSECURE MUST DIE!!!!!! Please, don't make new antiviruses for my viruses and I stop make viruses for your antiviruses. My target is Simworks! =)
Known as the Drever-C Trojan, this piece of malware attacks mobile anti-virus packages from F-Secure, Kaspersky and Simworks running on Symbian devices. Drever-C poses as a security update and tries to damage the boot loader and application binaries of F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus. Targeting security protection in this way is new for mobile malware, but has been known in Windows malware for some time.
