    SYMBOS_SNDTOOL.A is Symbian malware that affects mobile devices running the Symbian operating system with the Series 60 Platform user interface. This malware is currently spreading in-the-wild and infecting the following phone models:

    Nokia 3600
    Nokia 3620
    Nokia 3650
    Nokia 3660
    Nokia 6600
    Nokia 6620
    Nokia 7610
    Nokia 7650
    Nokia N-Gage
    Panasonic X700
    Sendo X
    Siemens SX1

    Once installed on an affected mobile device, it drops files in a specified drive of the affected phone. It then searches for online Bluetooth devices and sends to the first online device it finds the following possibly-malicious file specified in PATH.TXT:

    LE:\pbcompressor.Sis

    (Note: LE is not a valid path for the Symbian platform.)
