This talk will look at antivirus apps for mobile devices. It builds on previous research called “Mobile Antivirus Apps Exposed” and goes more in depth, diving deeper into how virus and malware can still exist on a mobile device even when an antivirus application has been installed.
The earlier research looked at some of the most common free anti-virus applications and which ones could be trusted the most. This new research looks at how malware can trick the antivirus applications and keep performing their malicious functions without being flagged or removed.
We will also look at the latest mobile malware and see if they are actively trying to bypass antivirus applications.
