Singlejump.B was formerly named Trojan:SymbOS/Onehop.B, but was renamed to Singlejump.B for more accurate classification.
When executed, the trojan disables most well known third party file managers and Anti-Virus software. Singlejump.B tries to disable F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus by replacing its files with non-functional versions.
It also installs Bluetooth-Worm:SymbOS/Cabir.G on the phone.
