Two new Symbian malwares found Posted by Jarno @ 18:47 GMT

Well, this seems to be active day.

Today we also got another sample which contains two new Symbian malwares. MGDropper is a malicious file distributed as Metal Gear.SIS. It disables file managers and Anti-Virus programs (but fails to disable F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus).

This thing also installs Cabir.G. Unlike Skulls trojans, MGDropper disables only the phone application installer, not all built in applications.

This thing is detected with Generic detection by F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus.
