Re: How many, @SuccessCase
If nobody is being infected, why does Android malware continue to be found, even in the Play Store? Why bother writing it if nobody is getting the malware?
Could it perhaps be that a lot of android malware is caught by those who:
1. Don't run antivirus on their phone
2. Wouldn't recognise the infection if they knew there was one
Don't assume that no smoke means no fire where malware is concerned. Windows users had to learn the hard way how to get used to looking after their PCs. Android is still young by comparison as a platform, and an awful lot of landfill android users are just upgrading to keep a phone. They have no idea they're even carrying something which _has_ malware.
Complacency? I'd say so, that's classic complacency. I don't know anyone who's died of ebola.... yet.
