in thread A Perl for the Zaurus
To put that into perspective:
The article lets people believe the built-in ftp-server allows just anyone on the internet access to the Zaurus. Actually it is not that bad: it only allows access to hosts on the same private subnet (which would be your LAN or through the cradle).
Sharp is working on it, I have heard that in newer ROMs the port 4242 (used for synching) is only used via the cradle. If you use a network card, that port is not open.
A big PDA Security issue is user dependent, because many people just leave important data unencrypted (passwords, banking data, etc.) although there are some tools available to save such data encrypted.
And frequent backups keep data loss at bay.
