First Trojan spy for Symbian phones

Thursday, 30 March 2006, 5:12 AM EST

Flexispy.A is a Symbian trojan spy that records information about the victim's phone calls and SMS messages, then sends them to a remote server.

What makes this interesting is that Flexispy.A is a trojan spy written by a company for commercial reasons. The company claims that it's a useful tool for catching a cheating spouse. By installing the application on the phone they can monitor to whom the victim is calling and what SMS messages he or she is sending. The company even claims that Flexispy is not a trojan.
