Chicago (IL) - Antivirus software firm Kaspersky Labs has found a network-capable worm which infects cell phones. Cabir distributes itself by scanning for Bluetooth-enabled phones and transmission of distribution files.....

Samo sam se pitao kad ce i to da se desi jer tel. radi kao kom, ali samo cekam da vidim kad pada sistem Laughing
evo teksta:
Kaspersky Labs je preneo informaciju o pojavi novog crva koji se širi među mobilnim telefonima. Crv koji je Kaspersky Labs nazvao Cabir napada telefone koji rade pod Symbian operativnim sistemom i do sada nije napravio veću štetu. Prema pretpostavkama kompanije Kaspersky Labs, autor ovog crva je "Vallez", član medjunarodne grupe pisaca virusa koji deluju pod pseudonimom 29a. Ova grupa je poznata po tome što je u prošlosti napisala nekoliko virusa koji demonstriraju ranjivosti novih tehnologija. Među njihovim ranijim poduhvatima su i prvi makro virus koji je izazvao globalnu epidemiju (Cap), prvi virus za .NET tehnologiju (Donut) i prvi virus za 64-bitne Windows sisteme (Rugrat).
Prve analize pokazuju da se Cabir širi kao SIS fajl koji se koristi za igre u Nokia telefonima, ali se predstavlja kao bezbednosna aplikacija Caribe Security Manager. Po infekciji na ekranu telefona se ispisuje poruka "Caribe" nakon čega crv prodire u sistem i aktivira se po svakom ukljucenju telefona. Crv traga za svim dostupnim telefonima koji koriste Bluetooth i šalje se prvom koga nadje. Za sada nije utvđeno da crv sem propagacije radi bilo šta škodljivo za telefon ili podatke korisnika.

pojave novih virusa mozemo da ocekujemo cim se poboljsaju operativni sistemi za mobilne tj. cim u njih ugrade sto vise mogucnosti vece su mogucnosti za greske, da ne govorim pristup internetu sa mobilnog kakve pretnje donosi

Već vidim AV kompanije kako razvijaju "software"-e za mobilne telefone i trljaju zadovoljno ruke.

Da, sa egzotičnim opcijama tipa Live Update over GPRS (ili over nešto drugo) i plaćanjem po svakom apdejtu Laughing

kako kazu za sada jedina opasnost je to sto virus dok koristi Bluetooth trosi bateriju brze...

Cellphone users don't have to worry about the newly announced cellphone virus, but should be aware of the implications for the future, says anti-virus expert Nick FitzGerald.

Security software developers warned this week that an international group which specialised in creating viruses to show that no technology was safe had created a cellphone virus.

FitzGerald, who consults on viruses and their construction for some of the world's leading software makers, says that this virus was not likely to cause anyone in New Zealand any problems.

The virus's destructive capabilities were limited to displaying its name, Cabir, on the phone's screen and trying to spread itself to other phones via the wireless network protocol Bluetooth.

"Even if it were out there in the wild it's very unlikely to get leverage.

If an infected phone does send you the virus, you would get a message asking you to accept the connection.

"If you said yes you would then have to agree to run the application as well and most users would reject it at that stage."

FitzGerald said the worst side-effect of the virus was its seeking other Bluetooth connections, which would wear the battery out faster than normal.

According to FitzGerald, the virus was designed to warn the phone manufacturers and the public about this kind of security issue, something he saw as the next frontier in the fight against viruses.

Anti-virus experts have been warning for months that mobile phone viruses were set to multiply, given the diverse uses of mobile phones.

Pa dobro zasad su ugrožena "bloetooth" izdanja mobilnih telefona. Smile
Može li se takav jedan virus eliminisati vraćanjem telefona na fabrička podešavanja? Smile

Affected models of phones include:

Nokia 6600
Nokia 3650, 3600
Nokia 3660, 3620
Nokia N-Gage
Panasonic X700
Siemens SX1
Sendo X  

EPOC_CABIR.A arrives as a series of messages, the first notifying the user there is a message to be received via Bluetooth, then states: "Application is untrusted and may have problems. Install only if you trust provider."  The user is then asked to confirm installation.

Once installed, the worm creates files in the default drive of the device, and creates files in the following directory: SYMBIANSECUREDATA\CARIBESECURITYMANAGER
