We are pleased to announce a call for participation to help shape the OWASP Mobile Top 10 Risks. This “Top 10”  initiative is intended to help organizations determine how to best apply development and security resources to better protect their mobile applications and data.   
+
The list below is release candidate v1.0 of the OWASP Top 10 Mobile Risks.  This list was initially released on September 23, 2011 at Appsec USA.  An update will be initiated in March-April of 2013.
  
In order to compile the most thorough and universally accepted guidance possible, we are reaching out to software developers, security consultants, and thought leaders from all industries to participate. This includes independent developers and consultants, startups, large consultancies, and large development companies. If you have an interest in mobile application security and the expertise to contribute, we invite you to get involved with this initiative.  The OWASP organization is built on openness and transparency, and our vision is for this initiative to adhere to these very same high standards. Participation is open and highly encouraged for all.

The below list is the result of a brainstorming session conducted by a small number of security consultants and application testers. For this list to carry weight going forward, it should be derived from the larger community that has had experience reviewing and testing mobile applications for security. A new initiative has been proposed to survey organizations for anonymous vulnerability data, and use this data to build the next version of this list.
