Projects/OWASP Mobile Security Project - Top Ten Mobile Risks
About this list
In 2013 we polled the industry for new vulnerability statistics in the field of mobile applications. What you see here is a result of that data and a representation of the mobile application threat landscape.
Our road-map for 2014 includes:
- More updates to the wiki content; including cross-linking to testing guides, more visual exercises, etc.
- A PDF release.
This list is still a work in progress. We are small group doing this work and could use more help! If you are interested, please contact one of the project leads.
Feel free to visit the mailing list as well!
