Latest proof-of-concept virus affects Pocket PC.
Back in August 2001, Virus Bulletin carried an article which warned "be prepared for the first Windows CE worms for Pocket PCs".
Nearly three years later the first virus to affect Pocket PCs has appeared: WCE/Duts.
Duts is a proof-of-concept virus written by the 29a virus-writing group, whose other recent creations include SymbOS/Cabir, the first virus to spread from mobile phone to mobile phone (a full analysis of Cabir can be found in the August 2004 issue of Virus Bulletin).
A fully-detailed analysis of Duts will be included in the September issue of Virus Bulletin.
