siliconbits writes "BBC News has shown how straightforward it is to create a malicious application for a smartphone. Over a few weeks, the BBC put together a crude game for a smartphone that also spied on the owner of the handset.

This makes malicious applications hard to spot, say experts, because useful programs will use the same functions."
