I’ve been through numerous debates on Android malware. The truth never fit the narrative spit out by, of all people, virus companies.

Then today…the truth:

 Based on the data from tracking over one and a half billion app installs Google obtained convincing evidence that the rate of “potentially harmful apps” installed is stable at about 1,200 per million app installs, or about 0.12%.

It’s verrrrry easy to read a headline about Android malware and respond with “open” jokes. Let’s see how many post the truth.
