Trojan for (Symbian)mobile phones

There is now a trojan that deactivates all links to Symbian system applications and replaces the icon images with images of skulls

Good news for Norton and McAfee, i guess? ...Not anymore it is ridiculous to talk about antivirus on cell phones

update: to make it clear, technically it's boarderline between malware and trojan, since it's still require your part to install it (and it doesn't spread itself so it's technically not a virus)... but surely we can see a trend here, cell phones are targets to script/code/virus writers and it's just a matter of time till someone find a hole to get in (and unlike computers, it's rather hard to "update" firmware on cell phones these day)
