Pausing Google Play: More Than 100,000 Android Apps May Pose Security Risks

@ November 06, 2012


From Bit9:
It's no surprise that employee-owned mobile devices are entering the workplace in big numbers, via the BYOD (bring your own device) phenomenon, but what about the apps that reside on those devices? Could they potentially compromise the privacy—and security—of your company and employees?

As BYOD becomes the norm, many organizations have no idea what apps employees are installing on their mobile devices. Does the unmonitored access these devices have to the entire Google Play app inventory threaten your business? Does BYOD really mean "Bring Your Own Danger"?

Bit9 analyzed more than 400,000 apps within the Google Play marketplace, focusing on the permissions requested by these applications and the threat each vulnerability poses.
