Malware On Mobile Grew 163% In 2012, Infecting Around 32.8M Android Devices, Report Says - BYOD | Anything Mobile | Scoop.it
Mobile service provider NQ Mobile today released a study of malware covering 2012, using data gathered from the company's Security Labs.

 

NQ’s data indicates that Android is a big risk for malware, but iOS has also recently come under fire for free apps that leak more personal data than on other platforms. Overall, mobile security is likely to be a growing concern, and one that could potentially become more complicated as the pace of improvements to mobile tech increases and our usage of those devices grows higher still.

 

===> For now, common sense is probably the best defense against security threats, but a more unified Android platform would help to limit malware problems as well as significantly improve developers’ lives. <===
