Handphone Virus

Handphone is not protected anymore. There were recents news of handphone virus. One example can be found in: http://newpaper.asia1.com.sg/printfriendly/0,4139,84329,00.html.

The expert views that the threats maybe coming soon through various ways such as MMS, bluetooth, etc.

In my opinion, since their first success in spreading virus, hackers will not stop spreading more and more virus to damage handphone software and even hardware. The first virus, known as Cabir, has caused panic to arise among users. More information about Cabir can be found at:

In conclusion, it is just a matter of short time for all of us to equip our device with a defensive antivirus software. In addition, the damage caused by handphone virus maybe far greater than that of computer due to rapid information flow among users through SMS, MMS, bluetooth, internet, etc.
