Has anyone came across a need for smartphone antivirus software? If so, what have you tried or read about that sounds good? I have a Palm Pre with WebOS, but this is more for a topic for a computer club meeting so anything that you found that works good would be helpful.

For what phone brands specifically? (I've heard good things about F-Secure's stuff — f-secure.com/en_EMEA/products/mobile/mobile-security — but then the guy who said that works for them. :-) –  Jonik Aug 18 '09 at 21:34

You might want to also add what phone OS - Symbian S60 3rd, Windows Mobile, etc. –  Isxek Aug 18 '09 at 22:25

what the heck, mobile phones are no longer a safe haven from the 'culture of fear'? :) –  Molly7244 Sep 16 '09 at 15:27
    
I did tell you the OS, WebOS. WebOS is a smartphone platform, powered by Linux, and developed by Palm. –  itprofessionalsgroup Sep 16 '09 at 20:51

I've personally never tried this software, but I've read about it Flexilis is a new smartphone antivirus. The website says Flexilis works across a variety of smartphones, so if you have a common smartphone, it should work on yours.

Phone of a daughter of my coworker was recently infected. She was able to cure it with http://products.drweb.com/mobile/win/

I must admit that I work for this company so my opinion can be biased :-)

I do like the looks of that product, but it doesn't look like it is supporting the WebOS platform. Thanks for the link though, it might come in useful for other phones. –  itprofessionalsgroup Sep 16 '09 at 20:48
