This morning, in the train, my mobile phone asked me to install caribe.sis,
I hadn't requested anything, so I said No. A chance, because it was a *virus*, or a worm to be more precise.

Carib is a worm for mobile (for the Symbian OS only)
This worm is only a proof of concept, there is no malicious payload, it only reduces the battery life.

It uses Bluetooth to go from a mobile to another (this limits the speed of the propagation), and was created in the Philippines in June 2004.

More than one year to reach me !
