WAP Virii? Well why not...

According to this story at The Register, virus security firm F-Secure is chirping about possible WAP virii doing the rounds. "If we haven't seen any type of malicious code on WAP phones by the end of the year then we will have been very lucky," enthuses the Finnish security outfit. As The Register, beloved protectors of the truth, point out, F-Secure just happen to supply the sort of software that can protect you from such malicious programming. Just think of the possibilities. Some nasty hacker could break into your phone and, yes, set your clock an hour late, immediately upsetting your daily routine with cataclysmic ramifications.
