Another Day, Another Mobile Virus FUD Story
One mobile anti-virus firm, which is proving to be a major source of FUD, is at it again: apparently the Cabir mobile virus is spreading like crazy at the world track and field championships in Helsinki, according to unsubstantiated claims of its press release. People at the event -- which happens to be in the same city as the company's HQ -- that happen to get infected can head right over to a sponsor's tent for some disinfecting and a free month's trial of the company's AV software, though. Then there's the new "BlueKISS" feature being pumped for Wireless USB that would pair two devices based solely on proximity -- no passcode, no tacit approval, nothing. That sounds almost like it was invented by an AV company so it can later come along and sell you some anti-Kissnarfing software or something.
