    So, first yes, my mom has one, though she was not converted on the Pre for womens commercials, I sold her on it. lol Anyways. I went to doctor her phone, update and just clean it up. Hooked it up to my laptop to back up the usb stuff and instantly when I connected it, my virus scanner went off that she has a virus. It guaranteed it and cleaned it. Was some random trojan, looks like it was probably from some music that was put on the phone. Doesn't appear that it did any damage to the phone or stole anything from what I can tell, but thought it was interesting and thought I would share.... It was the follwogin virus name TROJ_FRAUDLO.IA

    wow lmao, poor little virus was in uncharted territories, it was probably like where the hell am i, this does not look like a pc lol. I doubt it did any damage since it was not designed for the phone, but weird store my friend

    can I get a virus on my pre if I look at p.orn ?

    I'm for real, I've wondered this for a while.
    and don't everyone laugh at once, I know I'm not the only one that has thought of this.

    could you? Yes it is possible. But its also possible however remote the chance, that pigs everywhere start growing wings and flying around....

    Its possible, but extremly unprobable.

    It's a windows virus, so no, it's not going to damage a phone that runs on Linux.

    it is possible. Malware can be designed for any system, and the Pre is no exception. There are even a few flavors of worms for the Iphone now...

    does your work pay for the account? Then yes they have a right to know what your doing, although, I doubt Verizon is keeping URL's.... but they can tell how much mb's your using.... and streaming **** is gonna look differant to their bottom line than using it just for calls....

    oh, there's no shame in my game.

    But what about my work question?

    Can my job ever request a list of the sites thatI go to?

    In other words, can I get in trouble looking at **** on my phone?
    I'm on a unlimited data plan and nobody ever has my phone except me.

    maybe I shouldn't do it anymore.

    I guess I'll have to wait until I get home instead of pulling over on the side of the road.

    LOL

    totally just kidding.

    But thanks, I think I just wont look at it anymore. It's not worth it.

    The owner of any phone can monitor what you have on your phone. Even if it's your phone, you should assume that it's being monitored. It's better to be safe than sorry...

    You know most virus protection software doesn't even know what the virus is, it just looks for virus like behavior.

    Thats why people with a expired subscription to their AV almost always seem to have some kinda virus, because the definitions of what is virus like behavior change with every new varient.....
    also 2 active antivirus solutions will detect each others Reg entries and try and attack each other. IE Antivirus software kinda works like a virus in order to remove viruses....

    The most infected PC's I work on have a patchwork of AV solutions.... Mcafee scanner, Norton active, PC tool reg cleaner, Zone alarm firewall.... all that stuff on one machine is asking for trouble. I use AVG free and Malwarebytes as a scanner to remove stuff AVG let thru.
