Temptations lead to havoc

While some of us enjoy new releases such as Blackberry and the 3G phones with Nawras networks, we can't seem to relax.

Just hear this news about a yet to be controlled mobile worm infecting Symbian S60 operating system devices, including Nokia 6600, 6630, 6680, 7610, N70 and N72 phones.

If sorting your infection is not enough, it is alarming to think of these worms self-spreading them to every contact in the address book. Some how I feel vulnerable with technology no matter how much I read or do for precaution: there is always a new danger round the corner and I pay dearly for the comfort I want.

Mobile Phone worms cannot automatically infect a phone (though they can send themselves onwards)...this is because all mobile phones ask permission before installing a the Nokia S60 phones, an application received from someone else will normally be stored in the inbox and the user has to install it himself...
