The blaze of publicity that accompanied the release of the first iPhone worms
this month has sparked interest in selling anti-malware products for the device.
However no such security products currently exist and Apple shows little
inclination in licensing any that do get developed.
Antivirus products for Symbian smartphones have been available for years, but
not one antivirus product is available for the iPhone, from any vendor.
Releasing such tools would require the help of Apple, which tightly controls
what applications are licensed to run on the devices via its successful AppStore
