McAfee: Android Malware Problem Getting Worse

Rue Liu, Slashgear:

In only three months time, Android has gone from third most attacked platform to the first. Another recent report from Lookout claimed a similar upward climb in Android malware infected apps. […]

Malware incidences on Apple’s iOS have been so negligible that it has not made the list.

Remember the old argument about Apple platforms not getting malware only because they weren’t popular enough to attract attention?
