RiskIQ’s Q3 2018 Mobile Threat Landscape Report

Total Apps Rise, Blacklisted Apps Decrease to 3%, Magecart Infiltrates Mobile

The digital revolution has caused businesses to venture outside the safety of corporate perimeters into the expanses of the open internet where they can make more frequent and more meaningful touchpoints with employees, prospects, and customers. Unfortunately, this also makes them a target for a new breed of attackers that level internet-scale threats at their digital attack surface, a varied collection of client-facing assets outside the firewall that hackers can and will discover as they research their next threat campaigns.

A significant portion of this attack surface is the mobile channel.

To highlight the mobile threat landscape in the third quarter of 2018, RiskIQ applied its crawling platform, which monitors 120+ mobile app stores around the world and leveraged our daily scans of nearly 2 billion resources to look for mobile apps in the wild.
