Mobile phone threats to rise in 2006

Antivirus and computer security company McAfee said that cell phone virus threats will increase in the year to come. According to McAfee Avert Labs, mobile phone malware has grown 10 times faster compared to computer malware over the last year, because of the high number of smartphones.

The antivirus company also said that mobile viruses are more dangerous than PC viruses because they can spread much more quickly.

Users are less likely to install security on their mobiles because they don't see the same potential for attacks on mobile devices as they do on their computers, which will increase the threat of mobile attacks in 2006.

Companies like eBay will also be targeted by trojans and other password-stealing programs.
