asked on

is it possible to get malware on mobile devices like SmartPhones or iPhones?

Hi Everyone,

             In today's world, it seems like more and more wireless telephones are computers because of the ease of accessing emails, participating in social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, and even downloading apps. straight to the phone.  With such widely available features which are commonly associated with desktops and laptops, an important question does come to mind.

             Due to the fact that malware is actually a common risk to desktop pcs, laptops, netbooks, etc., I am wondering if such a risk could possibly be carried over to mobile devices such as Blackberries, SmartPhones, iPhones, etc.  

             Any feedback given to this question will be greatly appreciated.  I look forward to reading the responses given within this post.

              Thank you.
