Skulls on cell phones don't scare Symbian

Symbian says the Skulls program that disrupts some cell phones might not be a Trojan horse.

    Symbian is questioning whether the Skulls program that disrupts some cell phones running its software is actually malicious. The mobile operating system developer said on Monday that the Trojan horse, which breaks links to applications and replaces display icons with images of skulls, could be legitimate. "There's no accounting for people's tastes on the Internet," a company representative said.

    Symbian said that it is investigating the matter. It is collaborating with security company F-Secure on a fix for the problem.
