Cell Phone Viruses on the Horizon

PCWorld has an interesting article about a virus that can infect cellular phones.

"[The virus] spreads between mobile phones using a specially formatted Symbian operating system distribution (or SIS) file disguised as a security management utility... Once it has infected a mobile phone, [the virus] scans for other phones using Bluetooth wireless technology, then sends a copy of itself to the first vulnerable phone it finds"
