SymbOS/Pbstealer.G is a modified version of the SymbOS/Pbstealer.A trojan application that runs under the Symbian Series 60 platform. Pbstealer.G claims to be utility software that compacts the phone's Contacts database. Instead of compacting information, Pbstealer.G reads the Contacts database, and then sends the contents as a text file to the first Bluetooth device it finds.


F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus is capable of detecting and deleting the Pbstealer.G trojan. However, Pbstealer.G can simply be removed by uninstalling it with the Symbian application manager.
