    Bluetooth Commwarrior virus? Anybody come across it?

    We have a member of staff who has managed to catch a virus via bluetooth on his phone called CommWarrior

    We have searched the web but not really come up with a lot. The virus affects the Symbian OS and transmits vie bluetooth and MMS.

    It sounds nasty but if anyone has any ideas, please let me know.

    TA!

    http://www.f-secure.com/v-descs/commwarrior.shtml

    Information about the virus and how to remove it on the above page.

    Seems like a nasty one, it sends itself to everyone in your phone book!

    Ask him the question, why the hell did he say yes when it asked him if it he wanted to install it! It doesn't just install by itself!

    Or to cut a long story short, open the wap browser on the phone and go to: http://mobile.f-secure.com install the f-secure antivirus app and it should get rid of it.
