PostSubject: What’s a mobile phone virus?   Sat Feb 19, 2011 8:24 am







A mobile phone virus or mobile malware - malicious mobile
software - is a computer virus specifically adapted for the
mobile phone environment and designed to spread from one
vulnerable phone to another.




A virus is a program code that replicates by being copied to
another program. Viruses can be transmitted as attachments
to an email or in a download file. Some viruses take effect
as soon as their code is executed; other viruses can lie
dormant. A virus that replicates by resending itself as an
email attachment or as a part of a network message is known
as a worm.

Viruses can range from benign to quite harmful; they can
erase data from the infected phone or send fake messages
purporting to be from the phones owner. How prevalent are
mobile phone viruses? The current security risk from mobile
phone viruses and worms is low.




Until many more smart phones or PDAs are in use, and users
of these phones are regularly exchanging executable files,
the risk will remain low. The mobile industry takes the
threat of viruses very seriously and is continually
monitoring its networks and working to protect users from
any future risk from mobile phone viruses. There are also
some simple measures that individual users can implement to
protect themselves.




What can I do to protect my phone?





The following tips can help prevent problems with viruses on
your phone:




1.

Switch to Bluetooth hidden mode. If your phone has Bluetooth
capability, ensure that the Bluetooth capability is switched
to hidden

or invisible mode unless you specifically need it to be
visible. This will help prevent other Bluetooth-enabled
devices from finding your phone (unless you grant them the
necessary permission) and will therefore help protect you
r
phone from worms that spread using the Bluetooth wireless
technology.




2.

Exercise caution before opening attachments. When accepting
applications sent via Bluetooth, or opening MMS attachments,
exercise caution, just as you would when opening an email
attachment on your PC, because they may include harmful
software. Ensure the application or attachment comes from a
known source, and is wary of opening files that have
unfamiliar text attached to them, even if they come from
someone you know.




3.

Only download content from a trusted source. Trusted sources
may include operator portalsand other well-known
brands that offer adequate protection against viruses and
other harmful software. Be aware though that, as with
emails, malicious or fraudulent users may be able to fake
the appearance of a trusted source.




4.

Consider anti-virus software. Some software is available to
prevent phone viruses. You may wish to consider downloading
this software.




5.

Contact your phone manufacturer if concerned. If you think
you have a virus, call the phone manufacturer’s care line.
They can assist you confirm if it is a virus, and help fix
the problem.
