Re: virus, trojan hourses, malware from a cooked rom?

Too much effort for a relitavely small number of people that actually install cooked roms. Besides, most of the chefs and others dig into each others roms to see what makes them tick. That's one way they get ideas and learn from each other. Most of the chefs here and on XDA are well known and established members. Like piranah said, the outcome would be ........intresting if someone did.

That's not to say there aren't bugs here and there. Even the carriers with their multi million dollar development budgets can't release a rom without bugs, but that's just computers in general. You'll usually get better performance and features with a cooked rom though.

Plus if it could, how? Would someone really take the time to write a virus that lived on WM but spread to PC's? Virus creators want to reach the greatest number of people. The audience here is very small in comparison and not even worth the effort.

There are no "viruses" for Windows Mobile AFAIK.

IF it ever did happen I'm sure it would be from this site, as said above
