    news: intercepting cellphone calls with service sms

    interesting news report: http://www.itwire.com.au/content/view/7216/127/

    I had a look at their 'disinfector', and what it seems to be doing is just:
    1) kill ac.exe
    2) delete ac.exe, ac.dll ac.lnk
    3) remove a rule from registry that direct incoming smses to some com object
    4) deregister that com object.

    To me it seems there is no vulnerability or anything, they just install a trojan that registers itself in incoming sms hook and performs actions on received sms.

    Thoughts?

    I though they found a buffer overflow in the incoming sms service on windows CE but they just install a trojan.
    It's just a marketing thing for sell more PhoneCrypt program.
    I promise that I have read the FAQ and tried to use the Search to answer my question.
