    "Virus writers have created a Symbian Trojan which also attempts to infect a
    user's Windows PC if he tries to read a phone memory card on his computer.
    Cardtrap-A targets Series 60 Symbian devices and spreads via either
    Bluetooth or by tricking users into downloading and executive hostile code
    from the web. After infecting a Series 60 smartphone, Cardtrap-A copies two
    Windows worms (Padobot-Z and Rays) to the memory card of the phone in an
    attempt to hop across onto other devices."
