iOS users beware: You’re the biggest target for mobile phishing attacks

Phishing continues to be a problem, and attacks are moving away from the email inbox. A new report found that iOS is the biggest target, with most attacks coming from game apps.

A new report from mobile security company Wandera is putting a new face on phishing, especially when it happens on mobile devices. Eighty-one percent of mobile phishing attacks happen outside of email, 63% happen on iOS devices, and 85% of organizations have been phished whether they know it or not.

Phishing attacks on mobile devices is becoming increasingly common, the report says, and may even be the most pressing security issue of 2017, bypassing ransomware and other serious threats.
