Out of Pocket: A
Comprehensive Mobile Threat Assessment of 7 Million iOS and Android Apps
In a recent analysis of mobile apps,
FireEye discovered vast vulnerabilities in thousands of the most
popular downloads. This in-depth report reveals that Android malware
is growing more pervasive, and iOS devices are also increasingly at risk.
Based on analysis of seven million mobile
apps on both Android and iOS platforms from January to October 2014,
our researchers discovered a 500% increase in the number of mobile
malware designed to steal financial data. Researchers reviewed popular
apps with more than 50,000 downloads to assess their exposure to a
common vulnerability, and found that 31% of them were exposed to it.
Of those, 18% were in sensitive categories including finance, medical,
communication, shopping, health, and productivity.
