The Android v Apple war continues to rage on with fans of both brands hailing their devices are the best.
Whilst Apple’s iPhone is still hugely popular there’s no doubting that, with devices such as the Samsung’s new Galaxy S8, HTC’s U11 and the upcoming OnePlus 5, Android is producing some serious competition for the US technology giant.
However, there is still one area where it seems Apple has the upper hand.
Recent reports, coming out of China, are suggesting that there has been a huge 39 per cent surge in malware with almost all of it aimed at Google’s popular operating system.
In fact 99.9 per cent of this malware is reported to target Android devices.
The Internet Society of China and National Computer Network Emergency Response Technical Team/Coordination Center say they have discovered two million new malicious mobile attacks 2016.
And one engineer has revealed that an incredible 1.9 billion smartphones running on Android could be hit by these new cyber threats.
