    Just to let you know about the latest mobile phone scam that the O2
    technical Dept have informed me about.If you get an incoming call that shows
    'ACE' on your display, don't answer it The call from 'ACE' contains a mobile
    phone virus which deletes all information from your phone. Not only the info
    stored on the SIM, but all the info needed for the phones operating
    system.If you answer the call, the virus is transmitted rendering your phone
    completely useless. The phone cant be reprogrammed and will have to be
    replaced.

    .... and if you have a Bluetooth, IrDA or USB connection to any computer
    it will infect that one as well regardless of operating system. This is
    true for all variants of Windows, UNIX and Mac OS ...

    Oh, I forgot, the world is flat like a pizza. ;-)

    Old news I'm afraid, and absolutely nothing to do with what you originally
    posted. Cabir is a proof of concept which is spread via BlueTooth, only
    operates on Symbian based phones and has no destructive payload.

    That's nice, but what on earth has that got to do with virii spreading
    through voice calls, like you said in your first post?

    Yes, there has been a mobile phone virus created. This has been known for
    quite some time. But it is nothing like the one in your original post. That
    rubbish has been circulating for years. I find it funny people are still
    believing it. If you took any time to read that article, it is a simple,
    nondestructive virus that only infects devices running symbian.

    The worst part about a rumor like that is the inevitable crappy movie that
    will come along. But will it be a theater release starring Ben Afleck, or
    direct to video starring Dean Cain?

    The hoax actually originated in 1999. I can't believe people still belive it
    is a virus. i gues sit's the same people that respond to emails giving their
    CC number and other personal info to people that request it lol.

    AFAIK its a hoax, like the phone contacts that appear on your phone
    telling you you have a virus, which are usually received via bluetooth
    after being bluejacked (more info bluejackaddict.co.uk).
