Trend Micro Tests Smartphone Antivirus

This is good.  Now we have to remember to update the virus protection on our phones... sheesh!

Last month, in a proof of concept, the first smartphone worm wiggled its way onto phones running the Symbian operating system. The worm has not yet been found in the wild, but has still managed to catch the attention of antivirus vendors. In the wake of the incident, Trend Micro is seeking beta testers for its new Mobile Protect software for Microsoft Smartphone 2003.
