A new variant of the Skulls Trojan horse that affects Symbian-based cell phones has been discovered. By Ingrid Marson Special to CNET News.com Published: January 6, 2005, 1:35 PM PST F-Secure has reported that Skulls.D kills off all system applications, as did previous variants. But rather than turning individual application icons into skulls, as the first version of the malicious software did, Skulls.D tells people their cell phones have been infected by displaying a full-screen flashing skull, the security software maker said on Monday. The first Skulls variant was discovered at the end of November. A later version was packaged with the cell phone virus Cabir.
