Mobile Malware

What is Mobile Malware?

Mobile malware is malicious code running on unsuspecting user’s mobile devices. Though some mobile malware is pre-installed on phones by low-end manufacturers, most mobile malware arrives on devices via apps, particularly apps downloaded via third-party app stores or sideloaded onto devices.

Mobile malware is particularly interesting to mobile marketers, as mobile malware is key to perpetrating both click hijacking and install hijacking.
