“As Morey Haber, VP of Technology at BeyondTrust points out: Mobile device malware is appealing to cybercriminals because the attack does not require you to penetrate an organisation’s perimeter or cloud resources. All an attacker needs to know is the phone number of a potential target, the OS version of the target (unless they have a zero-day attack or social engineering exploit) and a delivery mechanism (e.g. SMS, Google Play Store, hijacked website).”
