    The number of reported security incidents on mobile devices in 2006 was more than five times as high as in 2005, according to a report from a security vendor. A study commissioned by McAfee found that 83 per cent of mobile operators have been hit by mobile device infections.

    "The research reveals that mobile operators are already feeling the impact of mobile threats on customer satisfaction and network performance and are increasingly concerned about the potential impact on their brand and the success of new revenue-generating services," said a McAfee spokesman.
