14erCleaner writes: "According to Juniper Networks, malware for Android platforms has increased 472% since July. 55% of the identified malware acts in one way or another as spyware. The other major type of attack, which make up 44%, are SMS Trojans, which send SMS messages to premium rate numbers owned by the attacker in the background of a legitimate application, without the owner’s knowledge. They credit the more open app store, with no up-front review process, for the greater amount of malware versus the iPhone platform."
