Commwarrior.G closely related to variant Commwarrior.A.
When Commwarrior infects a phone, it will start searching for other phones that are within Bluetooth range and send infected SIS files to the discovered phones. The SIS files that Comwarrior sends are randomly named, so that users cannot be warned to avoid files with any given name.
In addition to spreading over Bluetooth, Commwarrior will also read the user's local address book for phone numbers and start sending MMS messages containing the Commwarrior SIS file to those numbers.
