By Robert McMillan

IDG News Service - Computer users seem to be getting better at spotting fake websites that are trying to steal their passwords, but when it comes to mobile phones, the deck is most definitely stacked against them.

Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, recently took a look at 100 mobile applications, written for Android and the iPhone, and then thought up 15 techniques that scammers could use to write malicious programs that steal the victim's user name and password on websites such as Facebook or Twitter.

Their research underscores a thorny issue that promises to demand more attention as users increasingly reach to their mobile phones when they want to go online.
