Mabir.A -- An Agressive Cellphone Virus

Make sure you have your bluethooth turned off on your cellphone when you're not using it or you could get an unwanted and surprising dose of Mabir.A from a nearby infected user. And if you get the "Install caribe?" message, whatever you do, DO NOT accept it. Just another reason to not allow installations of anything on your cellphone you're not sure about.
"Mabir is a worm that operates on Symbian Series 60 devices, the Mabir worm is capable of spreading both over Bluetooth and MMS messages.
When Mabir.A infects a phone it will start searching other phones that in can reach over Bluetooth and send infected SIS files to the phones it finds."
