Toquimos.A is a Trojan that only affects Nokia series 60 cell phones.
Toquimos.A is a cracked version of a game for those cell phones. Once it is run, the program checks if the game has been cracked.
If so, an special payload, which was included in the original game as an anti-copy protection, will take place: an SMS message is sent without user consent to a high rate number, with a cost of about 1.5 pounds sterling. This SMS message is sent whenever the game is run. However, this high rate number is currently deactivated.
Toquimos.A does not spread using its own means. It must be installed and run by the user. Most common means of distribution are peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing networks.
Toquimos.A is easy to recognize, as it displays a window with the following text when it is run:
