While viruses for Symbian and Windows Mobile currently seem more like proof-of-concept studies, the Windows Mobile platform offers malware writers who already know Windows a very similar environment. Some may call it a hype, but that’s what people said about spyware 5 years ago as well, and our opinion is that it’s better to protect yourself before something happens than to do it afterwards.

Spybot-S & D for Windows Mobile uses a lightweight version of the detection engine of Spybot-S & D for Windows to detect threats for Windows Mobile and Symbian both, the later because Bluetooth worms could spread over OS borders, and while they would not perform on an incompatible OS, they would still waste precious space on the device.

Spybot-S & D for Windows Mobile is compatible to Pocket PCs and Smartphones running Windows CE 3.0 (Pocket PC 2002) up to the current Windows Mobile; there are separate downloads for the Pocket PC and the Smartphone version available on the download page.
