  1. Open-source Android OS is potentially vulnerable to malicious apps, sounds like common sense. According to Kaspersky though, the mobile OS is currently invaded by no less than 70 types of malware apps and there will be a lot more very quickly..

    TBH it is not something which I considered to be of importance earlier on, although it is still early but the question is will Google be able to make improvements which either considerably reduces the threat if not eliminate it altogether. So far the trend seems to be heading towards increase in this threat.
