It's just three weeks since the 29A virus group delivered Duts, the first proof-of-concept virus for PDAs [Personal Digital Assistants] running PocketPC, and already we have a viable Trojan horse that targets these handheld devices. The new Trojan, called Brador, was written by a Russian malicious code writer, with the accompanying text, "Get to work, folks, the PocketPC market will soon explode".

Interestingly enough, the author is offering to sell the client part for the Trojan to all interested parties, which means that there is a real chance that the backdoor may be bought by somebody who will use it commercially (bot network creation, for instance). Virus writers are turning professional with a vengeance.
