Windows devices account for 80% of malware infections transmitted via mobile networks
Microsoft may have just a single-digit slice of the mobile market, but there’s one segment of mobile that it’s winning: Malware infections delivered via mobile networks.
According to a Wednesday report from Alcatel-Lucent’s Motive Security Lab, in June Windows devices accounted for 80% of the infections spotted on hardware that relied on mobile networks for Internet connectivity. Meanwhile, Android‘s share of the total infection count dropped to about 20% after long hovering at the 50% mark.
iOS and other operating systems were at nearly negligible percentages.
