Hello, yesterday i have recieved a steam message with download link, which used to be a screenshot, so I downloaded it and ran it. And it was .scr file probably with trojan which were circulating throug steam. Fortunately, i was on my samsung galaxy s3 mini and it said: file cant be opened, so i have deleted it and googled it, and just after that i realised whats going on. So i would like to know whether this .scr trojan virus can harm mobile devices or not. Thanks

I don't think it can. .scr is a Windows Screensaver file that can be switched between .exe and .scr (i've found that). Hackers take advantage of this by disguising a virus with a screensaver file. But if you are not on Windows it cannot be used.
