Security is always a hot topic with mobile platforms, but most of the time the focus is on Android and the malware issues that exist for the platform if you don't use the Google Play Store. But, a new study shows that maybe we should pay more attention to the iPhone's security issues, because the study claims that the iPhone has more security vulnerabilities than Android, BlackBerry, and Windows Phone combined...

As long as you are wired you are insecure. There's no bullet proof security. 12 years back when we were scouting for our first dedicated server (yea 12 years back ... then we had opted for Wirex Immunix as that was considered hack proof" we asked about security ... and the answer that we got from them then, i am writing here ...

"Best security is pull the power chord from the socket" ...

I wonder what the folks will say about this that claim web use statistics favoring the iPhone means the iPhone should have a bigger market share.

I guess this means the iPhone has a bigger market share too?
