Kaspersky Lab chief malware expert Alex Gostev explains why the security risks to mobile devices are increasing, with nearly all threats aimed at Android smartphones and tablets. Kaspersky Lab is detecting 5,000 new mobile threats every week, according to Gostev.
The good news is that cybercriminals don't really know how to use the data they are stealing from infected devices at the moment. But that could quickly change, Gostev said. A large amount of mobile malware comes in the form of spyware and aggressive adware embedded in freely available mobile apps. SMS Trojans, designed to stealthily text premium rate phone numbers, also make up a significant amount of the malware detected by Kaspersky researchers. Gostev said the threat is likely to continue to increase as mobile use skyrockets. Watch the video here.
