Anton Tomov distributes a number of capable programs for the Windows Mobile platform including Pocket Hackmaster and Pocket Mechanic. It appears that Mr. Tomov recently distributed an update to the Pocket Mechanic program that includes some ‘malicious’ anti-piracy code. The program apparently detects if the executed program is a legally licensed one and if not it erases your entire Windows Mobile device by hard-resetting it. It has reportedly wiped out a removable storage card, too. Update: Anton Tomov disregarded this report in a private email as “nonsense” and as “a campaign led by a couple of people who are trying to hurt the perfect reputation of my name and the quality of the products I write“.
