The Cipher Brief: How has malware targeting mobile phones changed over the last few years? How do you anticipate that it will change in the future?
Ravi Devireddy: Mobile malware has been on the increase but not at the pace that one would infer from media coverage. Some media coverage is generated due to mobile security vendors trying to draw attention to the risks. The mobile situation is actually in a better place than the desktop ever was due to the increased focus on security when the platforms were established (e.g. code integrity mechanisms).
