Ukraine was included into the three of leaders
But do not hurry to rejoice to this fact. Ukraine was included into the three of leaders on number of the mobile devices infected with viruses. According to NQ Mobile, 6 % from all infected gadgets are in Ukraine. Ahead of us only Russia – 10 % and China – 39 %. And if to make recalculation of infected Ukrainian phones to total of phones registered in Ukraine, we will receive even more depressing statistics. And if at the beginning of 2013 we took the 9th place, in April already appeared on the 6th, and at the end of the first half of the year became the third.
This statistics says that Ukrainians in overwhelming majority thoughtlessly treat safety issues of the devices or at all do not suspect that there are viruses in the mobile phone. And after all than viruses which we catch on the devices are fraught? Conditionally they can be divided into three groups:
- viruses which abduct confidential data, for the purpose of their further illegal use;
- programs which carry out calls and sendings of messages without the knowledge of the owner on paid numbers that threatens with write-off of the considerable sums from your mobile account;
- viruses which crack mobile appendices of m banking and other appendices, which owners use at work with banks and performance of payments, the purpose – theft of means from bank accounts and payment systems.
In a percentage ratio it looks so:
43 % are PNP (potentially undesirable programs) which espionage programs, spam, trojans etc. concern;
32 % – programs for earnings on personal information;
23 % – completely block operation of phone.
