New Symbian worm detected SymbOS/Mabir Posted by Jarno @ 09:13 GMT

We have just received a new Symbian worm that spreads over bluetooth and possibly also over MMS.

The new worm is based on the same source code as original Cabir, but is different worm as it has MMS capabilities. So we named it SymbOS/Mabir.

The worm is still under analysis so no further details are available yet.

But the good news is that the F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus is already capable of detecting it using generic detection, using databases published on March 18th, 2005.
