First cellphone worm: "The malicious code, dubbed "cabir", is a worm that replicates on the Symbian operating system used in several brands of mobile phones, such as Nokia, Siemens and Panasonic.  The worm was anonymously sent to experts in various countries, but has not been detected circulating among cellphone users. It propagates through the "Bluetooth" wireless technology, repeatedly sending itself to any Bluetooth-enabled device that it can find, regardless of the type. The worm will not damage a phone or its software but shortens the device's battery life by constantly scanning for other Bluetooth-enabled devices. ..

If the virus succeeds in penetrating the phone it writes "Caribe" on the screen and is activated every time the phone is turned off and on. Mr Gullato said the good news was that for the virus to spread, cellphone users would have to accept wireless signals being beamed to the device."
