Are there viruses out there for the iphone? I keep hearing macs are safer than PCs, but how vulnerable are iphones? I received an email about a week ago from my aunt, and opened it up on my iphone. Apparently some photos were attached, and the phone froze while the email was being opened. I have settings set to load remote images. I had to do a hard reset to re-start the phone. Did I pick up some malware? Would there be any way to check? Are there anti-viruses out there for the iphone?
