Last time I checked, there were no known viruses for BlackBerry smartphones.

There is not a single virus in the wild for any of the major smartphone platforms. Antivirus software (if it even exists) is merely a cash grab with zero benefit. Any sort of malware that you can get on a mobile device will require some sort of user action. So your best defence is to research and don't just grant permissions willy-nilly.

...Any sort of malware you can get on anything requires some sort of user action.
But on Android, that "required user action" can be as little as downloading an app: Researchers create “clickjack rootkit” for Android that hijacks apps | Ars Technica
Android might be open, but that openness comes with a cost.
No mobile OS compares to BlackBerry for security.

In my opinion,no matter the mobile and the computer,as long as you connect it to the Internet,you will need a antivirus software.My smartphone and two computers all install Norton 360.It's very useful.I never worry about my exploring on Internet.Your #1 source for Norton 360, Kaspersky,ESET Antivirus and internet security software! | AntivirusPrice.co.uk
