Bluetooth Worm.
Symantec reports on a Bluetooth worm: It spreads itself on Nokia Series
60 phones and tries to install itself on any Bluetooth device it finds,
reducing battery life for the infected phone. A recipient has to accept
the file, apparently, for it to transmit. It’s hard to delete because
it hides itself in a directory that’s not accessible to the average
user. [link via Xeni Jardin]… [Wi-Fi Networking News]
