My phone caught a worm (in the wild)

This morning, in my office at the customer site, my 6600 said “accept incoming SMS via bluetooth?”.

Of course I said yes, just out of curiosity. And no, I did *not* allow it to install.

It was a Comwarrior.B worm. F-Secure detected it, no harm was done.

The question now is: how do I notify the sender of the Virus (“Nokia 7610”), who is somewhere in this big office building?

I have tried sending a special VCard with additional text, but he or she didn’t accept it.

Is there any way to do this – this would be an important step in fighting back.
