Homeland Security warns agencies about mobile malware attacks

Posted by Matthew Fortner on August 28, 2013 

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security released a report that alerts federal, state and local agencies about mobile malware threats.

The report says 44 percent of Android users remain on versions 2.3 Gingerbread which are most vulnerable to malicious attacks.

Users are urged to update to the latest version of Android available and install a mobile security suite like the free Carrier IQ Test app that helps detect and remove malicious software.
