Security firm Kapersky Lab has issued a warning for users of Android handsets. Kapersky says it has discovered the first Trojan-SMS that specifically targets Android devices.

The Trojan, named SMS.AndroidOS.FakePlayer.a, tricks users into downloading it by posing as a media player. After the 13Kb app is installed, it begins sending SMS messages to "premium rate numbers" unbeknownst to device owners. The result is that end users are hit with unwanted SMS-related charges on their wireless bill. Kapersky cautions that Android users pay close attention to the services that applications request to access before installation.
