Ninety-eight percent of mobile malware is aimed at Android users, a report from security experts Kaspersky Labs says.
This is largely because of the popularity of the platform. But the study also notes the “vulnerability” of Android’s architecture as a reason the mobile operating system is vulnerable. And most of this malware is aimed at stealing money, including targeting credit card information.
The report also says the mobile malware economy has moved from individual actors to more organized groups of programmers and developers mostly designing malware for profit.
