    if it does not, this may sound funny, but my advice would be to re-install the virus, then use that tool that was posted!

    nevertheless, great find everyone, this should really be stickied. I'll report it to the mods for consideration.

    mostly they get it via bluetooth and here's a simple way to avoid getting it

    if someone send you a message via bluetooth



    you can accept it, it wont install the virus



    now if you hit show it will install the virus and you don't wanna do that !!! what you have to do it is hit the hang up button and your screen will look like this



    now go to menu, choose messaging



    go to inbox



    after you open inbox the message that was sent via bluetooth will appear



    this is a jpg file so it's safe to open it but if you get caribe.sis or any .sis file from someone you don't know



    then delete it

    Ok .. i scanned my phone using the Cabir Removal Tool that I had posted earlier, and it said "Scan done, Cabir not found" but if i goto my Manager list .. it still shows Cabribe as a installed app on my Mem Card. And also its showing a blank icon with no pic or name on my menu list, which wont delete. That icon is veryy annoying.

    If someone knows anything on how to get rid of the icon and the name on the installed app list in the Manager .. plz lemme kno !! Thnx.

    for example, i know that one user in the phillipines got it in the wild...

    another user said that he got it from a download...

    share your story, and lets see what we can learn.

    PEACE!

    i think u'll either need to find the file in your mmc directory, or u may need to format your memory card

    i second that, format your mmc and see what happens, that should get rid of it...

    the cabir file removal tool probably doesn't scan the mem card.

    peace!

    you could back the card up to your PC... i.e., copy the card to a folder in your pc (the cabir virus can't affect your PC) and then format your card... then you can transfer back everything except the cabir crap (images, videos, whatever)

    they get it via bluetooth and it can be sent in two ways. if your mad at someone and you wanna send it to him/her without installing it in your phone, you use mobiluck and SeleQ to send it via bluetooth. Now that they are infected. The Caribe will search for another devices and send itself with out your permission
