Bluetooth Spreading Mobile Phone Virus?

Hackers turn to cell phones - November 26, 2004 A mobile phone virus! What will they think of next?

"Like a sneeze in a crowded room"
It spread through Bluetooth, a feature on some phones normally used to synchronize phones and computers. It sends wireless signals up to 30 feet, so calendar and contact information can be updated without hooking devices together with a wire. But Cabir hijacked that function, sending Bluetooth phones on a search-and-destroy mission to infect other Bluetooth phones, spreading the virus like a sneeze in a crowded room.
