SimWorks Anti-Virus

S60animation1Most Symbian Trojans aren't very harmful and are pretty hard to contract, but they can be annoying if you do find yourself infected with one. The best way to remove a virus, and to ensure that you'll be safe if you are unlucky enough to contract one, is to have an anti-virus program on your mobile. One such anti-virus program is SimWorks Anti-Virus (who were good enough to send me a free copy of their software to review).

SimWorks Anti-Virus runs just like a typical anti-virus program that you would find on a PC. You open up the application and it starts to scan all you Drives for infected files. If one is found, it gives you a warning and asks if you would like to remove this file.

T_1The User-Interface for the program is very basic and mostly text based. The advantage to that is the Anti-Virus application doesn't take up alot of space in your memory. The whole program only takes up 76Kb of memory which means even those with the smallest memory cards can easily accommodate this program. You could even run it from the phones memory if you don't use an MMC card (or if it was full).

VBut don't let the simple look fool you. This software has been updated to cope with all the latest Symbian malware threats including Velasco and Gavno (And you can see how easily it handles Cabir in the screen-shots on the left and right) and SimWorks supply regular updates whenever a new threat is found so you'll always be protected. (Users get a free 12-month subscription to SimWorks Update Service). The program can also be set up to scan your phone at regular intervals just in case you forget and will run a scan when you turn your phone on as well. The program can even detect malware as it arrives onto your phone.

I've personally tested this application by picking up a version of Cabir in a message before installing the software. As soon as i installed SimWorks Anti-Virus and ran the scan it found the file in seconds and asked if i wanted to get rid of it.

You can get SimWorks Anti-Virus right here for both Symbian Series 60 and UIQ phones. (The porgram is transferable between phones so if you buy a new phone you can still get SimWorks Anti-Virus on it without having to buy it again.)
