Bugs & Viruses "What happens when anyone can develop and publish an application to the Android Market? A 472% increase in Android malware samples since July 2011." A study by The Global Threat Center over at Juniper Networks details mobile attacks that are increasing both in numbers and sophistication. This contrasts to the iPhone, more secure in part due to Apple's proprietary hold over the platform through its review process.

As always the problem is the users.

Users are only half the problem, an insecure OS is the other half. If this article were about Windows malware, there would be a line around the building pointing that out. But since it's about Android, people are conveniently ignoring the fact.

The irony is that Android which is supposed to be so great, is totally unsecure, while Windows which is supposed to be unsecure, is rock solid these days.

*chuckle*
