Mobile phone trojan 'bugs' user conversations

According to a ZDNet article a new software called FlexiSpy can

record conversations and log all SMS and e-mail messages sent to and from the phone. It can also remotely turn on a phone's microphone to listen to a users surrounds (without a call even being made), and reveal the location of the mobile user.

According to the article,

The software, once physically loaded onto any Symbian, Windows Mobile or BlackBerry-based device, enables a remote user to monitor and control nearly all aspects of a mobile device.

Scary! but RIM, the makers of the Blackberry, are not fazed. Well, I am!
