Premium-rate texting trojan hits phones

For those of you with fancy Java-enabled phones and a penchant for mad text messaging, you may want to check your bill closely next month. A Java-based trojan has been discovered in the wild, and it’s making phones text premium rate services.

I’m not personally worried, as the keypad on my $350 phone is too small for text messaging, meaning ANY messages on my bill would be a red flag. I ignore the fact that I have no friends to text message, and that I couldn’t afford to do it anyway (as I am still trying to pay off the phone).
