According to a report, 79% of malicious attacks on mobiles in 2012 occurred on devices running Google’s Android operating system.
Symbian, Nokia’s system came in second place in the malware sweepstakes.
iOS had just 0.7% attacks.
This report should taken seriously, as Android is the most popular and widely used mobile operating system worldwide.
To make matters worse, many Android users (49%) are using outdated versions of Android making them more susceptible to attacks.
