Mobile users have come to realize in recent years just how insecure their devices are. Although smartphones today house many apps that get a lot more done than was previously the case, the security aspect has been greatly neglected.
Although smartphones run the same web scripts as normal computers and laptops do, the fact that they are not tailored for smartphones, as well as the meagre security features available in most smartphones, make it even simpler for the vulnerabilities in those web scripts to be exploited on such devices. Even other operating systems have been targeted continuously by hackers. However, over the years, Apple devices have been the cause of envy in users and developers of other platforms.
This is mainly because Apple has always branded its devices as immune, or quite close to the word, to malware and other such agents. This claim was much backed up by their superior statistics in the beginning, but of late, even Apple devices are ending up as victims of cyber-crimes. We take a look at how things stand at present.
