Just ran into an interesting article on Forbes about some security issues on smart phones that I found interesting.

Of course, one glaring point of interest is that while several smart phone mfg's are listed, there's one brand that's missing. It might be "security through obscurity", but it's interesting nevertheless.

To me though, the more interesting aspect of this is what does it bode for Pre users. The "takeover" abilities mentioned in the article can be done on a Pre by a user with root access. It will be interesting if similar or other security holes allow malicious access without having root access.
