Cyber Crime Hits Users at Home and On the Go-7

GFI Software™ recently released its VIPRE® Report for September 2012, a collection of the 10 most prevalent threat detections encountered last month. In September, GFI threat researchers documented a number of cyber crime campaigns directed at users of various social networking sites including direct message spam on Twitter® and a phony Pinterest application. Users of Android™ smartphones and tablets also encountered mobile malware under the guise of Grand Theft Auto® and lingering Olympics 2012 applications.

"With the emergence of smartphones and widespread access to the Internet, today's consumers have an ever-growing demand for constant, reliable connectivity at all times. However, constant connectivity to social networks, websites and email goes hand-in-hand with constant threats of malware, spam and phishing attacks," said Christopher Boyd, senior threat researcher at GFI Software. "The convenience of being connected 24 hours a day requires constant vigilance if the user wants to keep their personal devices and sensitive information safe from cyber criminals."
