Earlier today a received an unreadable SMS message filled with symbols and numbers. The sender was anonymous. Once I closed the message it automatically got saved on my SIM (I haven't set my phone up to do this - so it normally never happens). I could erase it from the SIM though (as far as I could see, at least).

So far I haven't noticed anything to make me think this has caused any damage - though I can't be sure.

But this really got my attention. Anyone else had this happen to them or know anything about it?

Not to my knowledge, well at least not for private use. I'm guessing we're going to see more of this soon though...

There is anti-virus program for cell phones:
www.fsecure.fi...

After all, these advanced cell phones are small computers. (about as powerfull as ten years old PCs)

I haven't heard of it myself. I certainly hope it doesn't happen to my telephone. Please keep us posted on what happens.
