Privacy, Security, Encryption A new variant of spyware "Spy.Felxispy" on Symbian devices causing privacy leakage has recently been captured by the National Computer Virus Emergency Response Centre of China. According to NetQin Mobile, there are more than a dozen variants of the spyware since the first was spotted, and the latest has affected 150,000+ devices. Once installed, the spyware will turn on the Conference Call feature of the device without users' awareness. When users are making phone calls, the spyware automatically adds itself to the call to monitor the conversation.

I know Anti-Virus is a swear word to some, but there is some long establish Anti-Virus solutions for Symbian.
Yes, it's not a silver bullet, but it sure helps.
Only thing is, Symbian anti virus solution providers...how long will they commit to these products on Symbian given uncertainty about it's future.
