Windows 7: Your Smartphone: The Next Big Security Headache

Your Smartphone: The Next Big Security Headache


2011 is the year that mobile security is going mainstream. Here at 2011 RSA Conference in San Francisco many of the security software companies I've spoken to have either released--or are planning to release a mobile security app of some sort.

And while smartphones aren't a major malware target in the United States yet, there are reasons to be concerned about the future of mobile security.

One of Android strengths is its openness. Just about anyone can write an app and distribute it without having to go through a sometimes lengthy review process. But as is the case on the PC, this sort of openness makes it possible for malware writers to infiltrate the smartphone. Security companies seem to think Android is the next big malware target, thanks to this openness, and the fact that it runs on so many devices.

The biggest security headache isn't the malware yet, it's actually losing your phone.

There are so many phones out there with not even a simple unlock code. One swipe and you're in.

Access to your banking (If you do it on your phone). Access to credit card info stored in your market accounts. The whole nine.
