Cellphone Virus Risk Minimal

According to the National Post and Telecom Agency, the current risk of a virus or other security threat to mobile phones is minimal.

But, in a new report, the agency says the situation can change as phones add new features, such as permanent Internet connections.

The report says that in a year around 10 percent of Swedish cellphones will be capable to transmitting large amounts of data to and from the Internet, which will increase the risk of virus infections.
