Risks to Sensitive Information

nowsecureNowSecure sent a tweet today saying the chances of encountering malware is very low and that the chances of apps leaking sensitive or personal information is very high and that’s the real problem.

I suppose that depends on what type of user you are or whether you are looking at the risks from the point of view of a company supplying a service through apps. Some kinds of user are more promiscuous, root their devices and obtain apps from 3rd party app stores where there’s a much higher risk of malware. Also, large companies with thousands of employees or customers greatly factor up the chances of encountering malware that might end up accessing sensitive company or personal information.
