Mobile Phone virus

CATEGORY: Hoax virus alerts

Another typical hoax virus alert, this one aimed at mobile phone users. The alert claims a dangerous new virus can infect your phone if you try to answer the call. "Hello? Hello? Oh, I must be talking to a computer virus, which is the most intelligent thing to call me today..."

Do not confuse this hoax with the real-but-overblown Timofonica virus. See related links below for more details.
