Game virus' bites mobile phones

"A mobile phone 'virus' inside a pirated copy of a game called Mosquitos is roaming file-sharing and software download sites, say security experts...The Mosquito Trojan is malicious because it fires off text messages without the user's consent while the unlicensed game is being played."

Oooh... This is going to be a real pain once hackers pick up on this. I wonder if it'll affect my Nokia 3310?
