MMS virus CommWarrior won't spread fast

F-Secure reported that the MMS virus CommWarrior won't spread fast because of some coding flaws. The anti-virus firm says that the virus has a time delay of anything from 15 minutes to several hours between attempting to send itself to other phones through MMS.

The virus is also capable of spreading via Bluetooth to other mobile phones. Once on a mobile and activated the virus displays the text 'OTMOP03KAM HET!'. This is Russian and means roughly 'No to braindeads'.
The firm also added that the virus is already known since January - and yet it isn't widespread.
