But yes, malware/viruses/etc are becoming a huge issue with smartphones. Hackers know people rely heavily on these devices, and that they contain tons of personal information.
I have no apps that do remote desktop. There are a lot of known security holes. Like you can get compromised by receiving a text message. Or the many PDF security holes. Someone should make an anti virus/malware to run on the phone from time to time. To get real time protection monitoring would drain the battery too much though.
