New virus closes PC/Windows Mobile gap
Tom Sanders in California, vnunet.com 28 Feb 2006

The Mobile Antivirus Researchers Association claims to have detected the first worm that can jump from a PC to a Windows Mobile-powered wireless device.

The 'Crossover' worm nests itself in a directory on a Windows PC where it will automatically activate once the user connects a Windows Mobile device using Microsoft ActiveSync...McAfee said last week that it has detected over 200 mobile viruses and warned that mobile pests are outgrowing those targeting PCs...
