Mobile spyware more serious threat...
- As a member of the mobile security community, our company is regularly asked by people about suspicious activity on their phone. Their biggest fear is that the phone has been 'bugged' by any number of spyware programs available for purchase. While some users are a bit paranoid, others have been 'infected' by such software. Due to the fact that these programs are manually installed by the supposed owner of the phone, any and all warnings that may popup due to signing requirements are not an issue. And once the software is installed, it remains hidden to those without technical skills to find them. So, while malicious code (ie. viruses, trojans, etc.) is an issue, it has a lot to overcome to be an effective attack vector. Spyware on the other hand, is prebuilt for specific phone models.
