The authors present recent research they have conducted to determine the simplicity of constructing malicious code for cell phones. The results are quite surprising, due to the straightforwardness of the programming interface and the availability of tools. Its paper recounts the results of a simplistic search for off-the-shelf code which can be utilized for the creation of malicious software for cell phones. Its search yielded a self-replicating phone virus which it simulated in a contained environment.
