Mobile Security News January 2009

I just read that CanSecWest's Pwn2Own is going mobile this year. It looks like they are going to have an iPhone, a Android (should be a G1), a Symbian, and a Windows Mobile device too pwn and own. I wonder how the rules are going to be for these devices. via twitter

Second part. There seems to be the first mobile phone banking micro payment trojan out in the wild according to Kaspersky Labs. The trojan targets a micro payment service that allows transfer of money and minutes between users of the service using SMS. Another interesting part of the story is that the trojan is just a modified version of an existing premium SMS trojan. Stories: 1 2.
