Submission + - Apple iPhone to be dialling for Trojans?

Gary writes: "Many people have said that the lack of attacks upon Apple's operating systems and devices can be attributed to a lower market share than Microsoft Windows-based PCs. Trojans, worms, and viruses for mobile phones are nothing new, infact we have come across several instances of outbreaks affecting Symbian Smartphones as well as a few running on Windows Mobile Platform. The two platforms will converge when the iPhone is released in the US on June 29th. The release will potentially make writing malicious code for both an Apple product and a mobile device irresistible to some attackers. The Safari browser and HTML email capabilities of the device could present an ideal attack vector."
