Cabir Worm slips through Symbian Vulnerability
Posted: 16-Jun-2004 [Source: Kaspersky Labs]

[What is considered to be the first Bluetooth worm, dubbed "Worm.Symbian.Cabir.a" was reported by Kaspersky Labs. ]

"Cabir is the first network worm capable of spreading via Bluetooth; it infects mobile phones which run Symbian OS.

"A wide range of phones from a number of manufacturers use this technology. To date, it is therefore impossible to list all makes and models which are potentially vulnerable. However, it is clear that Nokia 3650, 7650 and N-Gage phones can all be infected by Cabir.

"There are currently two versions of this worm. They are identical, except that one version, when displaying a Window Alert text, will include the text line VZ/29a..."

"The worm appears not to have any payload apart from propagating. However, the presence of the worm in memory, and the worm's scanning for active Bluetooth devices, may cause infected telephones to function in an unstable manner."
