Android Malware Surges Nearly Five-Fold Since July
Sightings of Android malware have surged 475 percent since July this year, according to Juniper Networks.
October and November are shaping up to become the fastest growing months for Android malware in the three-year history of the platform, according to researchers at Juniper’s year-old mobile threats network, the Global Threat Center. Juniper pins the blame on how Google runs the Android Market.
\"What happens when anyone can develop and publish an application to the Android Market? A 472% increase in Android malware samples since July 2011,\" Juniper wrote in a blog post. \"These days, it seems all you need is a developer account, that is relatively easy to anonymize, pay $25 and you can post your applications. With no upfront review process, no one checking to see that your application does what it says, just the world\'s largest majority of smartphone users skimming past your application\'s description page with whatever description of the application the developer chooses to include.\"
