Software attacks on mobile devices

In light of recent concerns about the security of Google’s Android mobile phone platform, Richard Overill of the Department of Informatics at King’s, and an expert on cyber security, speaks to Bloomberg Business Week.

The proliferation of mobile app stores at platforms from companies including Google, Apple Inc., Microsoft Corp., Research in Motion Ltd. and Nokia has made the functions and devices harder to secure, said Richard Overill, a senior lecturer in computer science at King’s College, London

“It is a new frontier,” said Overill, who has been researching the industry since 1992. “It’s been an area that the criminal fraternity hasn’t gone into before because they are doing quite nicely thank you in the computer space.”
