history! overall online retail sales are set to top $8 billion for thanksgiving, black friday and cyber monday combined this year./// ((christianne klein)) speaking of black friday... more people were shopping in stores over the thanksgiving weekend... but they spent less money--- that's mostly because retailers offered deeper discounts than last year. shoppers spent about 289 dollars on average... ten dollars less than last year.// ((paul joncich)) and while online sales on this cyber monday are expected billion dollars... cyber security experts warn that smartphone shoppers could be at risk because of counterfeit apps. anna werner shows us some of the biggest threats to smartphone users. nicole barker likes shopping through her apps - but didn't realize they could put her identity at risk.

(gary miliefsky/ceo, snoopwall, inc.) counterfeit apps are so good, they give you a complete shopping cart experience. everything through the congratulations, here's your order number, it's on its way and then you'll never get the goods." but miliefsky's points to something even more disturbing - with super-popular emoji keyboard apps. these keyboards replace the one on your phone, giving you an endless supply of emoticons for every occasion.. but he says many can also gain access to your contacts, text messages, possibly even passwords. google play told us the it scans apps "for potentially malicious
4:34 pm
accounts" and they have a separate tool for android devices to 'verify apps'. apple told us they "provide notice on all keyboard apps about the fact that these apps can have access to what you type" except for passwords, which apple says can only be typed in using the regular keyboard. (anna werner/cbs news/new york) if you desperately want those cute emoticons the expert's advice here is, don't install one that's free, pick one you pay for, hopefully from a developer based here in the united states. and if requests op keyboard wants to use the internet, access your contacts, or locate you through g-p-s, just say no. anna werner, cbs news, new york.
