    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~great. But do we really need a virus scanner? Exspecially if you don't open emails from unknown sources

    VirusGuard will protect you against malicious code that posses as a legitimate application. The latest exploit (BBProxy) was installed as a tic tac toe game but secretly allowed the attacker to hijack the corporate network through the trusted BES connection.

    Additionally, SMobile has developed a proof of concept virus that sends a premium SMS then crashes the device. This is a very elementary example but the exploits do exist.

    Viruses on the mobile device are similar to that on a PC and if you practice smart - low risk use you will most likely be ok without AV. However, you never know how the next exploit will represent itself.

    Note: If you are a BES user you will need to contact SMobile Systems directly to obtain the Blackberry VirusGuard BES Edition. (sales@smobilesystems.com)
