possible vulnerabilities

Since the OS on my HTC Vogue is Windows Mobile 6.1 pro, I was wondering if it were possible to catch a virus, worm etc. for an XP system or 2000 or ME or whatever and pass it along to my desktop or laptop when I plug it in and use Active Sync to downlaod apps or mp3s or anything else you do with Active Sync? It may be a stupid question, but the stupidest question is the one you don't ask because then you don't know.

Any replies and help will be much appreciated.

Re: possible vulnerabilities

Unless the virus or worm/trojan etc was written to execute on that particular format(ie pc or mobile} i dont think it is an issue to worry about
