Eugene Kaspersky, Co-founder and CEO of Kaspersky Lab, company that offers award-winning antivirus and mobile security software for home and corporate users, said at CeBIT that the security threat posed by mobile malware will increase this year and in the years to come. With more and more people accessing the internet via their mobile devices, with more and more people doing sensitive transactions (like online banking) on their mobile devices, cybercriminals will increasingly target mobiles.

"In the years to come, our digital personal life will centre more strongly around the use of mobile devices – whether we are looking at videos, participating in social networks or enjoying a spot of online shopping" said Eugene Kaspersky. "In our professional lives, however, we will be using both mobile services as well as conventional computer technology. The cybercrime scene will adapt to these changes and focus its attacks on Internet users – both of a personal and a professional nature."
