Kaspersky mobile security - one text zaps it all

Interesting to see that Kaspersky has upgraded its Mobile Security software with a new feature that - as well as locking data held on a lost or stolen mobile phone - also allows the data to be zapped using a uitably-coded text message.

Whilst this is a powerful security feature in v7.x of the software, I can't help but think that the feature could be misused by hackers who could - quite literally - delete data on a users' mobile using a single SMS.

The feature is one of several in the software, including the ability to couple the mobile phone's SIM card with the data in the handset.

This means that, if another SIM card is inserted in the phone, the data on the handset cannot be accessed.

All neat stuff, but the SMS-driven delete function still has me more han a tad worried...
