Security threats to smart phones jump in 2010

 

Security firm AdaptiveMobile revealed that 2010 saw the highest number of mobile malware infections aimed at smart-phone users. Reports of such incidents were up 33% from 2009.

Not surprisingly, malware created just for the Google Android mobile platform — the fastest-growing platform throughout 2010 — increased four-fold in the number of exploits. However, the total number of exploits remains lower than its older platform counterparts. Smart phones running Java-based applications saw the second-highest increase in malware reports, up 45% from 2009.
