>From what I understand (and it's not much, I was hoping someone here

help), there is an SMS "bomber" designed to crash mobile phone with a
flood of info. Exactly how it gets into a users mailbox I've yet to
track down. I'm assuming the users e-mail address is in an address book
somewhere on an e-mail capable mobile phone but I could be wrong. All
the info I can find is in German on dodgy warez sites, so perhaps it's
restricted to Europe? 4 of my users (that have told me) have now had it.
It's not a virus for a PC merely a lot of small e-mails (700 or more
from hackerxx). I've also had a couple of users with 60 ~ 70 kb e-mails
from hackerxx filled only with the text xxxhacker (or xxxhacher) I may
be wrong about the SMS but it is not enough info to flood a mailbox
merely annoying and easy to filter out. 
Does anyone have any experience? I profess to have absolutely no SMS
knowledge. Regards George
