Malware in both fixed and mobile networks is growing exponentially. It’s been reported that banking Trojans were removed from 1.6 million computers in the past year, over 20 million computers are infected by the 4 leading botnets and almost 70% of online adults, have fallen victim to cybercrime.
More frightening is that, as smartphone use continues to rise, mobile malware increased 4x in a 3 month period (early Sept to late Nov 2011), as reported by Kindsight Security Labs. There clearly is a problem that affects both subscriber and the service provider’s network. Being on top of the problem is a critical first step.
