Banking Trojans emerge as dominant mobile malware threat

Quote:
Kaspersky Lab's latest mobile threat landscape report portends more ominous news for mobile device users as the number of new malicious programs tailored for smartphones and tablets more than doubled to nearly 100,000 malicious modifications in 2013.

The vast majority of the most damaging mobile malware targeted users' money and bank cards, according to the security software firm's latest data, and more than 2,500 attempted infections by banking Trojans were blocked last year alone.

I think another reason for these attacks on mobile devices is much simpler.
Most people that use mobile devices don't use or know about security and don't want to know.
It's the poke and go crowd.

I would also add, configuring functions (at least the ones I've tried to configure) takes much longer to do, than on any laptop or desktop.
