Interesting article about wireless security.

Security experts estimate that as few as 3 percent of cell phone and other wireless-device users are protected by antivirus software, but, as it turns out, there is not yet much interest in creating worms for mobile devices.

Just as there only a few worms/viruses for the Macintosh, just wait till the perfect plan is created to infect a whole provider, and the cellphone's phonebooks entry providers :)

For my PDA I use Intego VirusBarrier, there arnt that many viruses I worry about for the PDA's though. :)
