Two men were recently arrested in France, accused of developing an Android Trojan that infected more than 2,000 smartphones.

"According to L’Informaticien, after a two-month investigation, authorities managed to identify the alleged crooks and apprehend them," writes Softpedia's Eduard Kovacs.

"It’s estimated that the Foncy Trojan earned them around $150,000, for each message charging the unsuspecting phone owner with around $6," Kovacs writes.
