Transmitter.C Mobile Malware in the Wild

A currently spreading mobile malware known as Transmitter.C (sexySpace.sisx; MD5: 3e9b026a92583c77e7360cd2206fbfcd), has brandjacked a legitimate application in an attempt to infect the initial number of devices that would later on further disseminate it by aggressively SMS-ing messaged to the web site hosting it - megac1jck .com ( Email: weijiang198@hotmail.com.

Upon execution it drops the following files in an attempt to infect S60 3rd Edition devices:
"c_sys\bin\Installer_0x20026CA6.exe"-"c:\sys\bin\Installer_0x20026CA6.exe", FR, RI, RW
"c_sys\bin\AcsServer.exe"-"c:\sys\bin\AcsServer.exe", FR, RI

What's sad is that just like the majority of mobile malware incidents, this one is also digitally signed using a certificate issued by Symbian to the name of XinZhongLi Kemao Co. Ltd or vendor name "Play Boy".

The sample (Sexy Space or SYMBOS_YXES.B) has been distributed to vendors, and the ISP hosting it has been informed.
