Cell Phone Worm in Spain

from the mobile-viruses dept

This is the first texting worm that I have heard about that actually spreads through mobile phones. WAP enabled phones are really being pushed in Europe (in some cases cheaper than non-WAP enabled phones). One thing that has really been bothering me is the lack of protection for these phones, there aren’t any anti-virus programs in place for mobile phones. The question is more when than if a mobile phone virus will hit, either mobile phone producers begin installing anti-virus software or we’ll soon see a large number of viruses spreading between phones.
