This makes these mobile devices very attractive targets for hackers, whom can easily exploit this information if mobile commerce applications are not adequately protected. Security has been one of the major reasons many consumers choose not to participate in mobile commerce, especially with some security firms suggesting that the number of mobile attacks will be on the rise for the foreseeable future.
