Mobile malware explodes, hits corporate networks

Smartphone users have seen an explosion of malware in the past year, mainly targeting Google's Android operating system, a survey has shown.

"They can use the mobile device to do reconnaissance and go deeper into the corporate network," Toubba said.

This is particularly worrisome for companies which allow employees to use their own devices for corporate networks.

Juniper's report said it "saw several attacks that could potentially be used to steal sensitive corporate information or stage larger network intrusions".

"It is clear that the threat of mobile malware to corporate devices is no longer a theoretical one. We expect the presence of mobile malware in the enterprise to grow exponentially in the coming years," the report said.
