Hackers have planted viruses in video games for smartphones running on Window’s OS, according to a security firm specializing in mobile devices.

The games — 3D Anti-Terrorist and PDA Poker Art — are available on sites that provide legitimate software for mobile devices, according to John Hering, CEO of San Francisco-based security firm Lookout.

The games are bundled with malicious software that automatically dials premium-rate telephone services in Somalia, Italy and other countries, sometimes ringing up hundreds of dollars in charges in a single month.

The services are run by the programmers who built the tainted software, Hering said on Friday.

This is kinda funny because back when I was a freshman in High School, when they had phones where you could only play games like hangman or snake, I had a dream once about my phone getting hacked and not working and it made me so upset. It was a really crappy phone, I couldn’t even text on it yet I was worried about it getting hacked because I was hearing horror stories about it. Haven’t thought about that since but now reading this article makes me really happy I have a phone that I can’t really play any worthwhile games on. I guess it’s just one more reason to get an Iphone if you are the type that  does play games on your phone. At least Apple doesn’t have virus’s amirite or amirite?

Because thats all that is in the news lately and therefore, that’s all i am finding to report on. Either way, Apple is set to unveil a new iPhone this week, only days after it’s new product, the iPad, went on sale.

Apple sent out the press invites Monday morning, according to Engadget. The invite itself is cryptic, as usual, with nothing more than the shadow of a large number “4” stretching across a blue background, plus a caption: “Get a sneak peek into the future of the iPhone OS.”

It’s pretty much the same of the same ol’ iPhone stuff. Except there are rumours that the new OS could bring multitasking to the iPhone for third party applications, finally. I guess working on that iPad helped? oh wait the iPad can’t multitask. Nevermind.
