Right after Cabir, the second virus for Symbian phones has arrived. This one has been specifically designed to Nokia Series 60 phones, but virus experts expect it to spread to other Sybian-based phones soon. It's name? fMSX/S60.

Unlike Cabir, which only prints 'Caribe' on-screen and keeps spreading itself using Bluetooth thus reducing the battery-life of the mobile phone, fMSX/S60 is a lot more agressive. It enables the user of the Symbian phone to play many MSX games, which include some of the coolest games ever made. This leads to total addiction. People who (accidentally or not) install the virus on their phone will never be the same again. In trains, on the bus, at schools, at work, in church, during boring lectures... everywhere the victim of the virus cannot resist the tendency to play as much MSX games as possible, thus reducing the battery-life of the Symbian phones to an absolute minimum.

Virus experts around the world are stunned by the effectiveness of fMSX/S60. Symantec and Kaspersky labs have lost many of their most experienced anti-virus experts, who are now completely hooked on playing MSX games. A McAfee representative already stated it is probably not very likely an antivirus for fMSX/S60 can ever be developed. You have been warned.

More information on this virus can be found on the fMSX/S60 website

Arghhh! I'm infected too! It's a very malicious virus that keep you playing MSX games everywhere. I have surprised myself playing F1-Spirit at university class, in the street, at the waiting room of the doctor, while waiting for the dinner at the restaurant, and an incredible large etc...

However, I'm not interested on any patch, fix or removal tool Tongue

OMG, seems I'm infected too...
It's effects are horrible. Similar to other ppls, I can't stop playing MSX games, in school during class, in busses, ...everywhere! Even on the toilet Wink

Results of it? Well a damaged 7650 keyboard, had it sent back. Smile
I could recover from that virus... but unfortunately Nokia was so kind and sent a new 7650-phone on the same day.
And the following day? After about 18 hrs I received my phone and immediately got infected again! Tongue Tongue

Karloch - you actually manage to play F1 Spirit on your Series 60?! Respect! The virus must have really gotten to you! SmileYou can bet that! Actually, F1-Spirit is the game that I play from my Series 60 most of times, just beacuse the controls are so simple and it is very suitable for mobile playing (and, of course, much much better that those all-around Java racing games). I simply start the race and put autofire on, so the car keep accelerating without pushing any button, and when I want to decrease speed I just use the brake. The rest is just right or left. Of course, it gets a bit complex when you play a rally race... :-/

Watch it! A new version of this agressive virus is out in the open. It already infected my phone. As soon as I touch my phone I'm lost...
