When do you think Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) will make it to
mobility? Do you think they will start with a phishing email? Or a
Smishing SMS? What kind of pedigree will the advanced threat have?

On July 27, an APT for mobile will be released.  It will be advanced, because it will 
have figured out how to turn on the speaker and turn up the volume, and will be 
persistent, because it will then repeatedly announce "Hey, this dummy still hasn't 
reponded to our great offer!" until you click on the malicious link.  It will be cross-
platform, infecting Android, iOS, Blackberry, and Symbian (Window 8 being too 
small a market to worry about).
