Attacks on mobile devices are expected to triple next year, according to a study released Monday and quoted by News.com.

That's especially troubling for small business, which has been given a lot more power to do business by mobile devices--everything from fielding e-mails and documents to taking credit card orders in the field on a small handheld.

The story notes that smart phones can spread viruses faster than PCs on the Internet and that all kinds of attacks are expected to increase. Security applications can help, as can staying on top of what's in the news.
