Android Malware Infestation Growing Explosively
Android nowadays is on everyone’s radar for both good and bad reasons. Not only is the Android platform growing rapidly, but also malware on the platform is growing explosively. Just few weeks back, Google removed 45 applications from their Android Market because these applications had malware sending personal data from user devices. And now Nikolay Grebennikov, chief technology officer for Kaspersky Lab, a security firm says that their company has identified 70 different types of malware in March aimed at Android, up from just two in September last year.
