    stupid newbie question -- security

    Advertisement



    hi all --

    Please excuse a stupid newbie question, I did some searches but wasn't finding answers and am concerned my new BB could be very sick before I figured this out:

    is there antivirus stuff, and anti-spyware stuff that I should have for my BB8830 (Verizon)?

    I have used Norton and Webroot on my PC(s) and only this year switched to ZoneAlarm because they had a single product for both anti-virus and anti-spyware for up to 3 PCs under one license -- mine, his and the laptop...

    But now I don't know what to do to be sure I'm secure/safe on my BB8830...

    thanks, sorry I have too much of a migraine to do an intensive search and try to find the answer more carefully myself...

    So...none needed means noviruses or trojan things or spyware? Is this because there isn't anything like cookies and executable files in the world of BB?
