Mobile providers clamour to become the first to offer AV protection for mobile phones.
Following the appearance of SymbOS/Cabir.A, the first virus capable of spreading via mobile phone, mobile providers have been clamouring to become the first to offer anti-virus protection for mobile phones.
South Korean SK Telecom announced the development, in cooperation with AhnLab, of V3Mobile anti-virus software, while Australian TSG Pacific claimed to have its anti-virus solution ready and waiting - a spokesman said: "We anticipated this type of virus nearly two years ago."
Meanwhile, mobile security company Jamanda has made a fix for Cabir available free of charge on its website.
All this despite the fact that, to date, there are no confirmed reports of Cabir in the Wild.
