The ability to accept web pages and scripts produces the opportunity for malicious code and viruses to be transported to WAP-enabled devices. This creates a new set of problems, and antivirus software must be able to deal with them.
WAP systems communicate using a WAP gateway system. The gateway converts information back and forth between HTTP and WAP, and it also encodes and decodes the security protocols. This structure provides a reasonable assurance that WAP-enabled devices can be secured. If the interconnection between the WAP server and the Internet isn't encrypted, packets between the devices may be intercepted, creating a potential vulnerability. This vulnerability is called a gap in the WAP.
