It appears that a question I posed here some time ago has been answered. I asked whether or not mobile phones would ever be susceptible to security attacks. We all thought not but today's news must be of concern to Smartphone users:
Does this provide a business opportunity for Secunia? What do othere members think?

I will not comment on any business prospects, but I will add that a 'smart'phone, being a complete computer with an operating system can theoretically be just as vulnerable as a PC.
Probably the only reason there are not more (known) attacks is because the security companies have not moved in too yet, and because hackers/crackers don't care too much about smartphones yet.
