Mobile devices are more than just portable desktop computers. They not only facilitate intrusion by highly accessible wireless means, but they are packed with dozens of radios and sensors along with many pre-loaded apps that continuously collect user information, including texts, contact lists, GPS locations, transmissions and more. This article should provide an overview of the vulnerable assets mobile offers and highlight just how difficult mobile is to secure.
