    another mobile spyware : steals SMS messages and call logs
    Researchers with McAfee claim to have found a first spyware application that targets the Symbian operating system for mobile phones. The spyware application comes bundled with a variant of the MultiDropper mobile phone Trojan. McAfee refers to the new online pest as SymbOS/MultiDropper.CG. It tracks SMS text messages that are sent and copies log file with the phone number of incoming and outbound phone calls.
