Android malware samples jump six-fold in Q2
Malware samples which consist mostly of mobile spyware rocketed to over 120,000 last month within three months. The OS's application signing shows further weakness, according to Alcatel-Lucent's Kindsight Security Labs study.
The number of Android malware samples have grown by six-fold over the past quarter, and loopholes have been found in Android application signing, enabling malware to easily enter the devices.
Alcatel-Lucent's Kindsight Security Labs Malware Quarterly Report released Wednesday, showed the number of Android malware samples had exceeded more than 120,000 in June 2013, a sharp increase compared to around 20,000 samples in March 2013.
