Is there such a thing as viruses for Windows Phone 7?

Does Windows Phone 7 get viruses? Should I be using some security software?

I'm sure there's a proof-of-concept virus for WP7 lurking on some dev's PC - ready to be deployed once WP has a significant user base. Right now? Nope. Matty's right ;)

Who are you calling Matty *shakes fist*

Every platform has viruses, malware, security flaws etc. proof-of-concept or otherwise. LIke this one for WP7:

But it's pretty insignificant in terms of whether people will actually get it or not.

oh, oops... I was looking at mobot on 2 phones side by side.
Got confused, blizzard :)
