Virus in Windows Smartphone Game

Posted Posted by admin in Technology, iPhone Apps, iPhone app development     Comments No comments

Just read this article about legitimate games built for the Windows Mobile OS.

The games are planted with malicious software. After they are download, the software calls up premium rate phone numbers in certain countries resulting in extremely high phone charges. The user is obviously none the wiser until the phone bill comes later in the month.

In my opinion this incident essentially vindicates Apple’s decision to only allow apps to run on it iPhone, iPod Touch and iPads within a controlled environment. With the approval process that needs to be followed before application can be uploaded into an Apple device, it minimizes the chances of a similar occurrence in an iPhone OS environment.
