Smartphones Hacker Target

Smartphones are becoming as much a fixture of the business world as a fax machine. They are replacing many of the traditional devices.

Unfortunately this means they are rapidly becoming the new target for criminals. Security companies have recently reported they have found malware and spyware on about 10% of mobile devices that were scanned in the month of May in 2010. This was double the amount found just five months earlier. With the number of smart phones on an increase the number is surely to increase.

You are probably now asking yourself how can I protect my smart phone? You should get an antivirus scanner and use it regularly on your phone. You should also be careful about downloading questionable apps. The sale of smart phones is on the rise and more than 500 million are inspected to be sold in 2011. So take the appropriate steps to protect yourself and not end up a victim.
