28-year-old charged with Cabir/Commwarrior crimes.
An unnamed man has been arrested in Valencia, Spain, on suspicion of creating and spreading 20 variants of the Cabir and CommWarrior mobile phone viruses.
In a groundbreaking case for the Spanish authorities, the man was arrested on Saturday after a seven-month investigation. It is thought his malware affected more then 115,000 mobile phones running the Symbian platform, and caused millions of euros' worth of damage, with costs arising from effects on individual phone users and the mobile service providers.
