Phone viruses?

Until recently mobile viruses affecting highend smart phone devices have been few and far between. However, due to the number of users who now have access to the internet on their phone and users who are downloading or syncronising applications to their phone, viruses targeting these type of devices could rise.

Most of these attacks were proofs-of-concept and did little or no damage. You should still be mindful of the potential threat of mobile viruses and know what you can do to minimise the chance of becoming a victim.


• If you don’t use a smart phone, you are safe from phone viruses.

• Use Bluetooth safely.

• Be careful about downloading applications from untrusted sites.

• F-Secure has an anti-virus program for certain phones.
