          Android Securities Fall Down ?


                                            Its a warning to Android mobile OS users as well as a blog post. Because when i studied the Mcfee's Third quarter security Report i concluded that the safety of Android is not in a balanced stage which means its in a trouble. This report says that most mobile malware are being developed against Android mobile OS. The amount of malware targeted at Android devices jumped nearly 37 percent since last quarter, and puts 2011 on track to be the busiest in mobile and general malware history. Nearly all new mobile malware in Q3 was targeted at Android. This follows a 76 percent rise in Android, Which mean security of android has been dongles.
                                                                                       McAfee says that malware authors are capitalizing on the popularity of Android devices (and perhaps the security flaws as well) this quarter. The Android platform was the only mobile operating system for all new mobile malware in Q3. One of the most popular forms of trickery in Q3 was SMS-sending Trojans that collect personal information and steal money. Another new method of stealing user information is malware that records phone conversations and forwards them to the attacker.
