Greetings community,

 

thanks for any info you can shed on this topic:

 

I finally ran into some degree of virus issue.. I was visiting a website using the browser that came with the Defy XT.  Upon visiting, a pop-up came up.

 

perhaps it (pop-up window) was generated by  http://warning.yourmobile.info    (that was listed in the pop-up --- what is that site?  how come?)

 

it also mentioned a  Trojan: MobileOS/Tapsnake

 

recalling from memory, the pop-up gave me one option, click "ok" to remove the virus...

 

so, I clicked okay, on a few consequtive pop-ups, then the pop-up went away.

 

shall I rest assured that this "Trojan: MobileOS/Tapsnake" was removed... any way that I can confirm?

 

Thanks!

-Brian
