We have received a sample of new Symbian trojan, that is different enough to get a new name. Dampig.A is a SIS file trojan that disables some built in applications and third party file managers, and installs several Cabir variants to phone, which will not start automatically however.
About the only interesting thing about this new trojan is, that is corrupts the system uninstallation information, and cannot be removed without disinfecting the phone with Anti-Virus.
On the other news, we received a report of Cabir infection in France. A journalist informed that his boss got Cabir infection in 3GSM conference in France.
So now we have 17 countries with Cabir sightings:
1. Philippines 2. Singapore 3. UAE 4. China 5. India 6. Finland 7. Vietnam 8. Turkey 9. Russia 10. UK 11. Italy 12. USA 13. South Africa 14. Australia 15. Hongkong 16. Japan 17. France
