Nokia: iOS-based malware is on the rise

Nokia Security Centre Berlin said Android continues to be the main mobile platform targeted by malware, but noted that iOS-based malware -- including XcodeGhost and FlexiSpy -- is on the top 20 list for the first time since the Nokia Threat Intelligence Report began. In October 2015 alone, iPhone malware represented 6 per cent of total infections. The report, which is based on findings from the Nokia Threat Intelligence Lab, also found that smartphone infection rates account for 60 per cent of all infections detected in mobile networks, meaning that smartphones have now overtaken Windows-based computers and laptops.
