Norway not in the EU

The article is based on a wrong premises:

Android malware attacks show perils of Google openness

nothing to do with openness

"Once installed, the apps exploited known vulnerabilities that gave the malware root access to a phone's most sensitive functions"

The above sentence quoted from the article is the key. If an OS has known vulnerabilities and the OS manufacturer or the phone manufacturer don't provide timely automatic updates that fix these vulnerabilites then it's to be expected that they will be exploited.

So the blame is on Google and the phone manufacturers, not the 'openness' of the OS or the marketplace.

Security through obscurity like Apple seems to prefer is not a viable longterm solution, any security expert will confirm that.

Once you know how to find it any woman will be yours after the first time with you... :-)

Let those nerdy scientists believe whatever they want, they have probably seen women's intimates only in textbooks and on porn sites anyway...
