Symbian Says Skulls May Not Be Malware
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 11/24/2004 08:21:00 AM.

Symbian Ltd., the London-based maker of the Symbian operating system used on high-end smart phones from a variety of manufacturers, says reports of malware may be premature.

According to a statement released last week, the company says there's little to indicate that the alleged "Skulls" Trojan is really more than just a poorly written application. The report of malware targeted at the Symbian-based Nokia 7610 phone spread quickly, but there was no evidence that the software was able to spread itself or even infect phones on its own.

According to the Symbian statement and user reports, the software must be installed intentionally by the phone's user. To do this, it must be downloaded from a distribution site, after which the user must go through a number of steps—including ignoring a security warning—before the software installs.
