Android Malware Explosion! But Wait...There's Less

Anitvirus company Kaspersky reports that the number of Android viruses is now around 15,000 - and that number more than doubled in the second quarter of 2012. Yikes.

And yet F-Secure, another well-known antivirus company shows "only" 40 new variants in the same time period, so what gives? The reason is simply down to a different way of counting the different versions seen in the wild. F-Secure uses a more sophisticated method and should give a more representative result - but there is no denying that Android is very popular malware target in the mobile world.
