Still you have not point out one piece of malware by name. Where is this going? Are you working on your post count or something? So far nothing of interest or importance has been said.
How do you think sites that offer pirated software make money?
Now when you go to a site offering "free" software that should cost money from somewhere like the Ovi store to put things back on track, sites such as those suggested by some of the posters in that other forum as a good place to get "free" software, you run the risk of also getting more than you bargained for in the form of Trojans etc.
Now I'm talking about using a PC to do this then transferring files to the phone, otherwise things like bot nets wouldn't exist and there wouldn't be a spam problem, if certain people couldn't lure unsuspecting people with offers of "free" stuff, especially if you follow up on the more illegal aspects such as changing an IMEI.
Do we have to write a frigging legal disclaimer on every post?
Back to the point the Ovi store will fail because what Nokia will be selling will be available free elsewhere.
If Nokia try to protect their IP by locking down their products and handsets a lot of Symbiam users will not be very happy because they are used to getting things for free and it will be going against the supposed open nature of Symbian.
