Seemingly harmless activities like Blue-jacking - originally used for anonymous flirting - have inspired criminals to target mobile users to gain unauthorised access to address books, calendars and business and personal contacts.
More harmful intrusions, such as viruses, worms and malware (malicious software), blue-jacking (attacks on Bluetooth-enabled devices) and VoIP Spam will become common, and increased use of mobile phones, remote working and WiFi will give hackers more access to private, corporate and government networks.
