As technology is pushed to its pinnacle many problems from the security perspective start to arise. Smart phones or if you will mini computers are great examples. The technology for the average end-user is great, it allows for e-mails, word documents and thousands of applications to be shared with an enormous amount of people. What is the problem then you say? Well lets start with the fact that all of these new operating systems are in their baby stages. This means that there could be many vulnerabilities in the system just waiting to be exploited by a malicious hacker. Due to the growth of ways for these phones to connect to the internet through wi-fi and bluetooth networks new attacks will be formulated says a UK think tank. They believe that “man-in-the-middle” style attacks will become a reality, this meaning that a hacker with adequate skills will be able to intercept transmissions between devices and receivers. Another problem with these phones is that they are extremely interactive with each other. This itself is its own vulnerability because if a hacker were to create a virus that infects your phone and then sends it to all your contacts and so on and so forth it would theoretically create a catastrophic meltdown without a patch. Many are and should be afraid that viruses like the Conficker worm will reach smart phones, planting itself, waiting for a command from its owner and possibly stealing much information in the process. Knowing all of this Tony Dyhouse says that ” government investment in cyber crime is also extremely important and it is in the national interest of every country as millions are lost each year through electronic fraud.
