The fact that hackers are increasingly targeting mobile devices isn’t exactly a secret.
And really, it’s not surprising either. After all, most of us are practically glued to our smartphones throughout the day.
An SMS arrived? Better read it straight away.
New email? Let me at it.
Somebody I don’t care about updated their Facebook status? Great, let’s see what they’re up to.
The increased attack volume we’re seeing directed at mobile devices is really nothing more than recognition on the part of threat actors that mobile devices account for an increasingly large proportion of web traffic… but aren’t nearly as well protected as PCs and laptops.
So with all that in mind, it shouldn’t be terribly surprising that we have a new mobile phishing threat to tell you about.
