Bad news for mobile users

F-Secure is reporting that Cabir has been found in-the-wild in USA. Given the low-level of appreciation of virus risk among mobile phone users, this is bad news.

Incidentally, I had my first “offer” of the Cabir virus last week. While down the pub a Bluetooth connection request popped up, which I accepted. Fortunately, I spotted the name of the file it was attempting to install and prevented it from doing so. Had I been less knowledgable, I would now be spewing out a virus over Bluetooth to all and sundry.

Symbian needs to step up right now and do something about this, before it becomes a major public relations disaster for them.
