    Hi guys, just a quick question - is it possible to get viruses on windows phone?

    Twice now whilst I've been browsing the net on my phone, I've been redirected to porn after the page has loaded. Could this be down to the site itself (I cannot remember the site first time)?

    Can we get viruses?

    Try deleting the history. That should clear away that problem, and yea its very unlikely to get a virus on WP.

    Not a virus - most likely the site itself had a redirect to porn (hmm... what kind of sites do you visit???) sites.

    Haha, it is Geeks Are Sexy - I tweeted them and they now know the issue (to be fixed tomorrow morning) :-)
    So glad it isn't a virus, and you never access those type of sites on your phone :-P
