AVG Claims Android Is #1 Target For Malware

AVG has recently published its Community Powered Threat Report is the first Quarter of 2011 and found an increased risk compared to Android users. The reason for the Android operating system is more vulnerable than other mobile operating systems is partly due to the open source part of the operating system. Compared with Apple’s IOS Android users to record programs outside the Android Market, install it to infect a primary target.

AVG claims the report is its Mobilation Android software allows users to download infected more than 10,000 applications every day. The company also presented the increase of spam and phishing attacks Smartphone users in particular should be Android. The company claims blocks, an average of 100 000 malicious e-mail and text messages a day is. AVG recommends that customers cloud-based services take advantage of secure, to install their equipment, but the big tools for self-protection device, because only the hardware resources of a smartphone.

Does that make me fear for Android user? No, it does not. I think a little common sense can join the path when it comes to service any computer, whether PC or Smartphone. Be careful what you’re looking for, and even more careful, what you install! If you have a strange “behavior” on your Android device, a substantial account of the factory settings. Basically, vigilant, and you should be in shape.
