Viruses spread like stupidity. If one is stupid enough to download a shady app then its expected, isn't it.

and the myth of 'only stupid people get malware' persists. It gets annoying and is heavily outdated.

There's really no "story" here, it's just a fact of life. I have had zero Malware and I've rooted/rom'd several android devices and install from other sites. You just have to be intelligent enough NOT to put absolutely anything on your phone.

really, not even security-related apps? wth.gif

Nope. There's zero reason for me to have any security apps. For one, I keep my phone ON me anytime I'm out of the house, right next to my junk, to ensure that I never reproduce.

I am very stingy with what apps go on my phones. Here's what's currently on my phone that ISN'T gapps/stock ROM related:
Fandango (with only my location enabled for movie findings)
Atom Launcher
Elixer2
DiskUsage
Solid Explorer
Swiftkey Flow
Facebook
theChive
Titanium backup pro.
Player Pro for local music.

Sometimes I'll grab games like World of Goo, but the less garbage on your phone, the better. I've installed apps from XDA, mods, etc, but only from "trusted" XDA devs.

The thing is your aunt, mom, and their co-workers aren't the ones that mess with their phones enough to know about third-party apps and app stores. It's actually the ones with a moderate understanding of Android and the internet that are probably being most affected. They're smart enough to get themselves into trouble yet stupid (or perhaps just ignorant) enough to keep themselves out of it.
