Hi, "not that easy" might be right, as mobile viruses are not as frequent as the PC ones, but getting a mobile virus is not impossible at all - to date, we have registered thousands of unique apps that exhibit malicious behavior. Most of them are eventually removed from the market, but Avast can detect them when they hit, before they do any damage.
