Phone charger can place user on malware alert

A Virginia-based company, Kaprica Security, is set to introduce a smartphone scanner in the form of, all things, a charger. Skorpion, as the charger is named, will provide relatively easy protection because the device will scan for malware while the phone is powering up. The setup is no more complicated than plugging in Skorpion and plugging the phone into the charger. In doing so, Skorpion will scan for malware, viruses and malicious rootkits, The process consists of three basic parts, quick scan, deep scan, and a report of the results via the company's web interface.

That sounds like a great idea if only people are smart enough to use it and it works as advertised.
