No surprises, simply another reinforcement of undeniable truths.
Attackers continue to target Android more than any other mobile operating system, according to a new report released Tuesday, as Google's platform played host to all but one of the new mobile malware families discovered last year.
Microsoft's Windows Phone was the subject of the lone non-Android malware discovery, while Apple's iOS escaped the year unscathed. The data was revealed by Symantec as part of the company's annual internet security threat report.
"The attraction of the mobile environment to attackers is clearly based on the size and growth rate of the user base today," the report reads. "Yet it's also based on the amount of personal information that's easily attainable once an attacker is on the device. With the right permissions the device's phone number, GPS coordinates, camera, and other information become readily available."
The full report is in the link. The walled garden looks more and more like Eden every day, though there are those out there who would try to convince you it's a prison (foolishly so). Embrace the truth -- the truth will set you free!
It's so easy being honest.
