CA: Don't Believe The Mobile Malware Hype


CA reacted sharply this week to a deal by Finnish security vendor FSecure to provide mobile antivirus service to a U.K. telecommunications company.

On Monday, CA issued a statement from its European offices that claimed FSecure was trying to boost its sales by hyping the malware threat to mobile devices, said Sam Curry, vice president of product management at CA, Islandia, N.Y.

"The only [mobile malware] we are seeing is proof-of-concept," Curry said. "There are no worms or trojans that are a massive threat [to mobile devices]." CA: Don't Believe The Mobile Malware Hype - Security Computer Associates, F-Secure - CRN
