WinThusiast -> Fake Virus Texts Send Evil Message! (8/18/2004 5:40:01 PM)

The makers of Resident Evil have fallen from grace with security firm Sophos after launching a controversial SMS marketing campaign

The SMS marketing campaign of Resident Evil has been criticised by security company Sophos for causing virus worries among mobile phone users. Game producers CE Europe are rewarding users for sending text messages and emails to friends telling them they have been infected by a virus. This campaign comes only a week after Symbian's warnings about a mobile phone virus in the wild.
