    A virus that can allow hackers to take over PDAs running Microsoft's Pocket PC operating system has been created, antivirus company Kaspersky Labs has warned.

    The Trojan is thought to be the work of a Russian hacker who is trying to sell it for use by spammers or hacking groups. It affects all versions of Pocket PC.

    Yes, it did not take long.

    For a country that creates such a great diverse product like KAV, it sure spawned it's share of evil doers also. :mad:
