The specific danger is that hackers do not normally have access to your programs all day long, leaving them specific strike times for targeting. Normally, you might check your emails quite a few times a day but you just open it to see if anything is new and close out of it until next time. On the other hand, with instant messaging, usually the messenger is open all day but just minimized when not in use. This leaves a much bigger window of opportunity for the virus writers to intrude.
When a friend asked me the other day on why I bought the Blackberry Curve, I realised how fond I am of this little gadget. Itâ€™s light at about 110 gm, and the keypad has been designed to suit thumb typing. The Blackberry Curve has a Speaker phone with voice Activated Dialing facility, which is useful for me when I needed to make called while driving. The phone also has a media player and a 2.0 MP camera which has built-in zoom and flash. A special feature the Blackberry Curve has is that it has the trackball, organizer and Blackberry Maps. Itâ€™s hard not to fall in love with this phone.
