Web ads eclipse porn as leading source of mobile malware

Quote:
Web ads directing users to malicious sites have surpassed pornography as the leading source of mobile malware, according to a new report from security and networking solutions provider Blue Coat Systems.

Today, one in every five times a mobile user encounters malware, it's through a tainted web ad. Just last year, web ads accounted for only 5.7 percent of mobile malware compared to 22 percent for porn sites.
