Cabir 'hoaxed' by Belga Press Agency.

The Belgian Press Agency Belga is exagerating the possibilities of the mobile phone virus Cabir. After an article at the Sunday Times it seems that some press agencies took the wrong conclusions as this virus could 'dial out' and such things. Please Belga ask a second opinion at a virus expert (like me ;-) ) before publishing something you read in the press! BTW this is not the first time this is happening ... several years ago they looked at a real hoax as a real virus! At least some people at VRT Radio and TV checked with me what really was happening and didn't make 'news' about it. That's what I call a fine journalistic approach.
