According to a recent study by Trusteer, mobile users are more likely to be hit by phishing
1) because their devices are always on, and
2) it's physically harder to spot an obvious phishing website on a smartphone than a traditional PC
Smartphones and tablets are all the rage these days and that's great news for malware purveyors because, according to security software vendor Trusteer, people are far more likely to let down their guard when accessing the Internet with their iPhones, BlackBerrys and other mobile devices.
Trusteer makes a security software called Rapport, which guards your passwords for online banking and other secure transactions. My bank provided it to me, but you can download it for your own PC from http://www.trusteer.com/webform/download-rapport
For your smartphone, however, you'll just have to be more careful, because the links and email sources are not displayed in their entirety.
On a percentage basis, Trusteer found that 65 percent of people who visited known phishing sites were using an iPhone. Another 16 percent were using an iPad while Android and BlackBerry users checked in at 9 percent and 8 percent, respectively.
