But Android is not the
only platform with widespread apps. In fact, Apple was, far more fruitful with
apps than Android. And Apple appeared to be leading
for relatively some time, right after Symbian’s downfall and before Android’s enormous
rise. So why has Apple moved the bullet for all this time? There was an intention,
and the apps provided a hypothetical means for infection. The answer comes down
“Android is a semi open source platform, sense that plentiful of the code
is offered for everyone to see. This makes it far easier to find security pigpens”
Apple and Android have dissimilar processes of app making and app admissions.
In this case, we need to confess that Apple seems to have a harmless system.
That is not to say the operating system of Apple in itself is harmless than
Android. It is, still, more difficult to study Apple’s operating system due to
its fastened nature. And when a dimness is found, it is very difficult to snitch
an exploiting app into the App Store, because of the extensive practices Apple
has in place for making and approving new apps. Besides these effective
measures, Apple also has a tool in place to rapidly eliminate hateful apps from
any iPhone. This way, the energies that go into making a wicked app and having it
available in the App Store are nullified within minutes. With Android, this condition
is completely dissimilar. Android is a semi open-source platform, meaning that
much of the code is accessible for everyone to see. This makes it far easier to
find security pigpens. It also makes it much easier to produce an exploiting
app. Unlike Apple, Android trusts on users to keep their smartphones clean by allowing
them determine whether or not confident authorizations are granted to an app.
The guess that users are always attentive and alert when it comes to installing
apps, is slowly verifying to be a rather naïve one.
“Apple also has a mechanism in place to rapidly eliminate hateful apps
from any iPhone”
These facts, combined with a not very strict process of approving new
apps, make Android a greatly easier target than Apple ever was, thus giving generous
opportunity for crime. It is easy to imagine how happy cyber-criminals are
about apps that let users to pay by mobile phone, or contribute in mobile
banking. This can be money-making in a much faster way than promising the hijacked
phone to an expensive SMS service, which is one of the key ways they have factually
made money. In the Far East and also in Russia paying with your mobile is
becoming very common. We see that wicked apps aimed at this possibility are
widespread in those areas – much more than elsewhere – which denotes that
cybercriminals are succeeding the money.
But Android is not the
