Why was 2014 such a turbulent year in mobile security and data breaches? Sony’s security vulnerabilities were exploited to the severe detriment of their reputation. Two of the largest malware-based thefts in history hit Target and Home Depot. iOS vulnerabilities, masque and wirelurker attacks surfaced.
