Abstract
Personal Communication System (PCS) designates a set of wireless communications capabilities that allows the combination of terminal mobility, personal mobility, and service profile management. PCS can provide users with an all-in-one wireless phone, paging, messaging, and data service through portable devices. However, mobile services relaxed security has effectively made device users a target for hackers; mobile users have become increasingly concerned with security risks. The need for security has never been more detrimental than it is now. In this paper, we present a survey on emerging security issues of personal communication system, such as virus, worm, phishing and many others. In addition, some real recent examples are studied and finally some security rules are given to PCS users.

Keywords
Security, personal communication, virus, worm, phishing, malware
