        F-Secure offers anti-virus protection for the particular cell phone that is affected. There are also manual removal instructions.

            Interesting, but it doesnt explain the process of it. Does Blue tooth have to be activated in order for it to be infected?

            I heard bluetoothing is like hella popular in Europe.

              Please note that Caribe worm can reach only mobile phones that support bluetooth, have bluetooveth switched on, and are in discorable mode.

              It goes on to say that you cant disable bluetooth once you are infected.
