NowSecure #MobSec5

Hi there,

It’s been one year since the doves cried. We plan to mourn the anniversary and celebrate the legacy with spaghetti and orange juice (only because we’re out of maple syrup and jam – key ingredients in starfish and coffee). 
Dig, if you will, a picture…of the week’s mobile security news. Among other items, this edition of #MobSec5 includes:
  • Kaspersky says Android exploits are up 12 percent
  • Two class action lawsuits filed against developers of mobile apps
  • An expose on the market for mobile “stalkerware”
Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend, be good, and stay safe.
