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!
