[infographic] Types of Mobile Malware

In connection with our article and animated video that launched today, we also wanted to share this infographic to better inform consumers on mobile malware.

In the past couple of years identity thieves and hackers have become even more sophisticated, shifting their attention to mobile devices. Malware applications originally developed for Windows operating systems are rapidly being migrated to attack mobile platforms. A February 2015 report from McAfee showed a 6x increase in mobile malware over a two-year period and found that “8% of all mobile devices are infected with 387 new threats every minute, or more than 6 every second.” Yikes!
