SymbOS.Doomboot.U is a Trojan horse that runs on the Symbian OS, which is used as the operating system for Nokia Series 60 cellular telephones. It overwrites system files with corrupted binary, which causes the phone not to be able to restart.
SymbOS.Doomboot.U reportedly arrives as Symbian Anti-Virus.sis. If a user opens this file, the device Installer will display a dialog to warn the user that the application may be coming from an untrusted source and may cause potential problems.
