A security association is reporting what it says is the first virus that can pass from a PC to a mobile device and then erase files.
The proof-of concept virus is not yet threatening users. It was sent to theMobile Antivirus Researchers Association (MARA). The organisation said the virus came with a text file that read, in part: “This is proof-of-concept code for educational purposes only. This virus closes the gap between handhelds and desktops, now it’s one big world open to all.”
