The NCSC, in partnership with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sports (DCMS), has published a report highlighting the risks associated with app stores.
The Threat Report on Application Stores has been produced to protect UK consumers and enterprises.
Smartphones and smart devices have seen a significant rise in usage over the past decade, leading to higher use of app stores and applications. These have led to several security issues, and taking actions must be considered to avoid incidents.
The report provides links to detailed guidance which can mitigate the main threats, but the report has also been compiled to inform the DCMS review and call for views from the tech industry.
You can read more about the DCMS review on gov.uk, and the full report is now available here on ncsc.gov.uk.
