Today, the technology advancement in telecommunication facilitates users to bear portable devices with convenient and timely accessing to their personal and business data on the fly. In this regard, mobile and ubiquitous devices become part of the user's personal or business growing. Recently, the usage of portable devices has drastically amplified due to wireless data technologies such as GPRS, GSM, Bluetooth, WI-Fi and WiMAX. As the use of wireless portable devices increases, the risks

As the core open communication mediocre, the Airwave, is susceptible, there has been a rise of a security technique suggested by researchers. When comparing to security measures proposed to protect wireless devices, protecting mobile vulnerabilities is still immature. So in this study, we present an organized and widespread overview of the research on the security elucidation for wireless portable devices. This survey study discusses the security risks imposed by vulnerabilities, threats and security measures in the recent past, mainly spotlighting on complex attacks to user applications. We classify existing countermeasures at guarding wireless mobile devices facing different kinds of attacks into various groups; depend on the revealing technique, collected information and operating systems. In the next phase we will design and implement new security model to protect mobile phone resources against unknown vulnerabilities.
