According to a new report by Nokia, cybercrime is shifting its way faster and faster to the mobile space.
Nokia’s latest “Threat Intelligence Report” said that malware infections on mobile devices reached an all-time high in 2016, rising almost 400 percent in the past year.
The report said that Android phones are the most vulnerable phones, representing 81 percent of malware infections in the second half of 2016, while iPhones and other mobile devices made up only 4 percent of attack victims.
