    Angry Virus in mobile

    Hello!

    I got some virus in mobile and I cannot remove it.
    I tried to remove all programs and restore factory defaults but it is still there. I tried with f-secure mobile antivirus but it found nothing.
    I cannot use it for calling each call cost to much and all money on it just gone in few seconds.
    It is Nokia N72. And I also did upgrade it to leatest version.
    I thought that it was something else that did it before but it is some stealth virus in it.
    What must I have to remove it and what must I do?

    Thank you for any help you can give.

    Save what you have to and reformat your memory card as I bet that is where it is hiding.

    It sounds like one of these dialler type malwares that calls or texts premium numbers.
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    It shouldn't do. This kind of malware just connects to premium numbers or sends them gibberish text messages. There is no point in recording the content as it is meaningless.

    The only software that might be of use is call logging not recording. Then you will know the premium numbers that the connections were made to.

    I cannot use it for calling each call cost to much and all money on it just gone in few seconds.
    That's the disadvantage of pay as you go..............nobody cares because they already have your money and you don't have an account.

    Same OP though... I wonder if it was downloaded [unintentionally, of course] in an attempt to get a call recorder up and running? 0.o

    I'm thinking that maybe in he's hunt to get the recording software that maybe along the way he has downloaded something and it's had nasty's attached to the .jar

    there are a lot of addon games / software floating around that has been tampered with. It's just a matter of getting the stuff from reputable sites, and the others...

    You are probably quite right regarding the source. The link should be:

    http://********jar.com/products/7505...aS603rdEdition

    But, if you want to purchase it, you go to:

    http://www.Rock-Your-Mobile.com

    The link the OP posted doesn't seem to work?

    http://********jar.com/products/4700...rNokiaSeries60

    Also this doesn't sound right:

    For Total Recall I found that it costs about 5$ for each call
    The software actually costs $13.50 and CRP is $11.95

    That still leaves the question of the virus..............................

    Also this doesn't sound right:
    Nihil the url has been spam filtered. the url should look more like this

    http://g e t j a r.com/products/4700/CallRecorderProforNokiaSeries60

    Copy the above url removes the spaces between getjar paste in url bar and mash the enter key.

    Also wish the OP would return and give us a update or something...
