Mac OS X And so the iOS-ification of Mac OS X continues. Apple has just announced that all applications submitted to the Mac App Store have to use sandboxing by March 2012. While this has obvious security advantages, the concerns are numerous - especially since Apple's current sandboxing implementation and associated rules makes a whole lot of applications impossible.

Since Android most exploits are actually social engineering exploits*, not technical ones, iPhone leads in phishing exploits by a wide margin.
On the technical exploits side iOS and Android are on equal footing.
