Hackers Focus Entirely on Android, Not iOS or Other Platforms

Android Malware

Android is the number-one targeted mobile operating system by hackers, topping iOS and all other platforms, according to a quarterly report from security firm McAfee. Android was susceptible to over 14,000 threats in the first quarter, accounting for virtually all malware in the mobile space.

Malicious threats are centered upon the United States, China and Russia, but attacks are also emerging in other countries such as Australia, India, Italy, South Korea and Thailand. These threats include phishing attacks, commercial spyware and adware, botnets and trojan viruses.
