The iPhone and a trojan!

What did I told you about a year ago ... malware would be coming for the iPhone and ... what appereared several days ago ... indeed a trojan for unlocked iPhones. The trojan installation package seems to be contain false application installation information that causes third party applications to be removed if the trojan is uninstalled from the iPhone. I saw warnings about the trojan at http://www.modmyifone.com/ in thread http://www.modmyifone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=24323.
The malicious package was taken offline soon after the discovery of this low-risk threat over the weekend.
This only shows us a normal security related problem with an iPhone. Be aware that this is just the beginning... It's still strange that we didn't saw too much problems (yes I know, we got a few) with Windows mobile based phones until now, isn't it?
