    Wonder if I can throw that virus on my Blackberry and get a few more paid days off work while they send me a new phone.

    The virus attacks a PC on the network and alters the DNS info on the router. This piece of malware made life hell for us on my last job, wasnt difficult to remove but the company had a stupid scope of support and checking the router wasnt part of that scope at the time. Otherwise its a pretty simple piece of malware to remove otherwise.
