    Zeus Trojan infects Blackberry's

    Has anyone seen this, or has anyone been infected, I hope not. Apparently the trojan gets in through SMS messages, and will allow remote access to your phone. This can be a particular problem if you do mobile banking as the attacker can get your passwords.
    I have been searching around and found some information at the following locations:

    Be careful, do not instal software pushed from SMS.

    As an addtional note on this that since OS 6.x has a WebKit browser it has made these blackberry's susceptible to hackers. In fact at this years Pwn2Own event a BlackBerry Torch running OS 6.0.0.246 was successfully exploited by hackers. Bad news, although I suppose it is to be expected and at least RIM are currently looking into it. BB isn't the only mobile or non-mobile system that has been hacked. Safari was also hacked into.
