WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- The odds are rising that your cell phone will be hacked -- eventually. Like PCs in the 1990s mobile phones are largely unprotected by antivirus software. Plus, there is all that valuable information about you on there. It's a treasure trove for hackers.
Security experts tell CNN the big attacks haven't come YET because cyberthieves are making so much money attacking Windows PCs.
But that's changing already. McAfee says cyberattacks on mobile phones rose by 6 times this year.
A lookout survey found 4 in 10 mobile users will click an unsafe link this year, and less than a fifth of the devices run any antivirus software.
