Infojack Trojan on Windows Mobile

Infojack Trojan on Windows Mobile. McAfee, a popular security firm has warned that they’ve discovered a new Windows Mobile trojan. This time, the trojan, InfoJack Trojan, is actually in the wild and capable of infecting unprotected Windows Mobile smartphones.

The InfoJack Trojan spreads by either tricking mobile users into installing seemingly legitimate application installation files or if punters inadvertently use an infected memory card on vulnerable devices. The malware has been spotted circulating in China.

InfoJack disables Windows Mobile application installation security. It sends the infected device’s serial number, operating system, and other information to the author of the Trojan (a factor that explains the name of the malware). Infected devices are left vulnerable to the injection of further malware strains by allowing unsigned applications to be installed without a warning.
