Android: Today’s biggest target with Many Android Malware
Android targeted throughout 2012…
Over 100 million Android phones shipped in the second quarter of 2012 alone. In the U.S., a September 2012 survey of smartphone users gave Android a whopping 52.2% market share. Targets this large are difficult for malware authors to resist. And they aren’t resisting—attacks against Android are increasing rapidly. In these pages, we’ll share some examples, and offer some perspective. We’ll ask: How serious are these attacks? Are they likely to widen or worsen? And what reasonable steps should IT organizations and individuals take to protect themselves?
