10 years of mobile malware
It's been 10 years since the first piece of malware targeting a mobile device was discovered. Back then, however, hardly anyone kept important information on their mobile phones, so there wasn't much use in hacking the devices, anyway. But that all changed with the advent of the smartphone, and the explosion of the relatively open Android operating system. Keen to exploit the fact that unwary consumers use their devices for almost everything, cyber-criminals have created enormous catalogues of malware targeting Android. Here, we chart the history of mobile-targeted malware.
