Report: Android the target of 97% of mobile malware last year
The good news, if you live in the U.S., is that these attacks are mostly attempted overseas, with just 5% taking place in the states. Of the top ten countries reporting efforts to infect Android, 75% of the incidents came from Saudi Arabia and India. The top five European countries on the list made up only 15% of the discovered malware cases.The report also says that it would be wrong to say that Google isn't trying to beef up security on Android.
After testing apps from various third party app stores, one third of apps from Android159 were found to contain malware. The good news though, is that a puny .1% of apps from the Google Play Store were infected.
