Can mobile phone viruses attack SIM cards?
The area of mobile phone viruses is fast becoming fact rather than fiction with the first one announced on the 16th June. With this development, mobile phone security will become a much bigger field of research. A phone virus could easily be shown to wipe your contacts or SMS folder but does anyone know whether a virus could do any damage to the codes stored in the SIM card such as the Ki and the IMEI? If it could then it would render your SIM card useless. Is the area that these values are stored on the SIM card erasable or is it just readable? And where in the SIM card are the contacts and text messages held?
Any other ideas on mobile phone viruses are extremely welcome!
