  • RSA detected 10,390 rogue mobile applications, an 11 percent increase from last quarter and 22 percent of total fraud attacks.  (NOTE: Total year/year increase is 985% which you can use at your discretion, but I am not including in fraud report because I know it’s simply for the fact that we have added more stores to monitor).
