Wednesday 22 February 2017 | 13:45 CET | White paper | provided by MobileIron

Welcome to the third edition of the Mobile Security and Risk Review from MobileIron. This bi-annual review provides IT security leaders with timely information about the mobile threat landscape and the emerging risks facing their organizations.

The mobile threat landscape with new threats and trends Almost immediately after we published the second edition of this report, high profile vulnerabilities and new malware families began appearing. The Godless malware, identified in late June 2016, managed to infect an estimated 850,000 devices.1 Initially discovered in February 2016, Hummingbad was more widely analyzed in July, and it appears it was created by Yingmob, the group behind the YiSpectre iOS malware that made headlines last year. Hummingbad succeeded in infecting nearly 85,000,000 devices.2 The apparent goal of both malware families was to drive fraudulent ad revenue. However, what is more more notable — and sinister — is that they contained exploits that attempt to “root” devices over the air without the user’s knowledge, thus giving attackers full control of an infected device.
