Unscrupulous cellphone dealers in the Phillipines are taking advantage of people’s fears about viruses and charging people 500 to 1000 pesos (around 9 to 18 dollars) to remove the Caribe virus from their Series 60 phones. Keep in mind that Caribe isn’t much more than a proof of concept virus that does nothing other than use Bluetooth to find other phones to infect. That does slow down the phone a bit, but there’s no data loss or snooping or whatever. In fact it’s pretty easy to get rid of the virus for yourself with a file manager application so don’t get suckered into paying someone else to do it for you.
