That flashy little device in your pocket is a big security risk. Hackers are increasingly targeting mobile devices to steal data (emails, contacts, corporate data, financial information) and send premium rate SMS, using up your bandwidth in the process. Android devices are most vulnerable to threat – last year Sophos Labs saw an 1800% increase in Android malware. While there is less iOS malware these devices are still vulnerable to attack, particularly jailbroken devices.
