Mobile Phone Virus Surfaces in US - Mobile Phone Virus Surfaces in US
Mon, February 21 2005 | 3:59PM | PermaLink Feedback?
The world's first virus that specifically targets mobile phones has made an appearance in the United States. Called Cabir, the virus initially appeared in the Philippines about eight months ago. Since then, it has spread to twelve countries and could eventually threaten a significant portion of the 1.5 billion cell phone users worldwide. The virus originally appeared in a technology gadget store within two cell phones in the store's window, leading researchers to believe that a passer-by infected the two phones by using Bluetooth. The virus then spread to the store owner's phone, and Hypponen said it was likely other phones in the area were infected, although no reports have been received. The virus spreads slowly because it uses the Bluetooth capabilities of the phone to propagate itself.
