Beware of Virus in mobile phones

These days, even cell phones are not spared by viruses. Beware of viruses spreading in hand phones. Cell phones, hand held computers and Internet devices are affected by viruses. Warnings are given worldwide that the viruses that previously targeted just PCs and servers are now targeting mobile phones and they can cause more damage than in computers.

These viruses only target the higher end hand phones. 3G phones, WiFi enabled phones and phones with Internet access are the targeted phones. In developed countries mobile commerce is quite common and therefore when these phones are affected millions of dollars are lost.

Business emails, stock indices and other m-commerce activities carried out using mobile phones and therefore they are more virus prone. The good news is that there are many anti virus software available for mobile phones.
