Thiry mobile viruses and counting
Following up on yesterday’s Cabir post, Reuters/Yahoo reports on the growth in mobile phone targeted viruses. The latest stats: There are 30 known mobile viruses today versus 112,000 known PC viruses.
The best part of the article, however, is this quote from mobile security software maker F-Secure:
“Previously, it had been a little like selling refrigerators to Eskimos,” Vihavainen said about attempts to sell the software to mobile operators. “Now we are actually getting calls from major operators asking us what to do.”
That’s a metaphor only someone from a northern country would come up with!
