android malicious program

According to the security company G Date recently released survey data, Android platform has become the hardest hit by cybercrime, only in the first quarter of 2017 found 75 million new Android malware applications, which means that an average of 8400 per day New malware appears. The company expects to have more than 3.5 million new Android malware by the end of this year, compared with 3.25 million malware last year.

The company also pointed out that one of the keys to the problem is that some of the old models can not be upgraded to the latest Android version, in fact, according to Google official information only 4.9% of smart phones and tablet users upgrade Android 7.0 Nougat system, run Android 6.0 Marshmallow Equipment more than 31%, Android 5.0 Lollipop equipment more than 32%. There are 20% of the devices running Android KitKat.

“The problem is that third-party handset manufacturers will not provide the latest operating system updates for older models (the old device is for more than a year), and the vendor-supplied update is often very slow.”
