The Unprotected Connected
Mobile malware isn't showing signs of slowing down, which should be concerning to wireless operators as they are likely getting blamed for it.
According to Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU), 15 million mobile devices are infected with malware at any one time -- a number that's growing by 20% annually. And 65% of mobile users expect their wireless operator to be the one to do something about it. The problem has led Alcatel-Lucent to virtualize its mobile malware security platform, so that operators can more easily respond to attacks. (See AlcaLu Virtualizes Mobile Malware Security.)
