Kaspersky Lab, one of the big names in computer security and antivirus technologies has reportedly identified the first virus targeted at the Android operating system.
This particular virus, Trojan-SMS.AndroidOS.FakePlayer.a, is a Trojan that is distributed through a message sent to users which asks them to to install a 13KB "harmless" media player app. Once you've installed it, the Trojan begins sending SMS messages to premium rate numbers -- all without further interaction from the end user.

The Trojan is, according to Kaspersky Lab, the first identified to specifically targeted Android-based smartphones.

But Android is in good company. Last year two malware attacks hit Apple's iPhone: the "Ikee" and "Duh" or "Ikee.B".

To protect youself, don't install anything from sources that you don't trust. This Trojan requires you to agree to install the player. If you don't, you're safe.

該來的還是會來 Android出現首款病毒!

 由於Google與協力廠商大力推廣Android平台,因此有越來越多人使用此款作業系統,同時也漸漸成為不少意圖不軌人士鎖定的目標,而終於在最近出現了首款針對Android攻擊的病毒。

 防毒廠商卡巴斯基日前發現一款潛伏在文字簡訊中的木馬型病毒,名稱同時被稱為「Trojan-SMS.AndroidOS.FakePlayer.a」,同時將會透過文字簡訊傳染給其他同樣使用Android的手機。

 當手機接收此組文字簡訊時,系統將會詢問是否安裝一組被包裝成看似無害且為13KB大的多媒體播放程式,假使使用者按下確認並安裝之後,病毒將會常駐於背景運作並自動透過手機通訊錄內容傳送簡訊,而可能將會造成使用者通訊費用增加。

目前還沒有明確的方式可用來判斷手中的手機是否被病毒感染,現行最好的防治辦法便是拒絕一切可疑的安裝請求,或者是看之後是否將會有相關漏洞修補?
