I would hardly call that a solution or a way to /thread...That's like saying, don't surf the internet where you shouldn't and you don't need an antivirus! While true, it's still a pretty weak statement.

Remember that not every Android user is like most OCN'ers. Instead the average user will always browse wherever and not really worry and will download apps/content from wherever and not really worry.

Just sensationalist news with highly skewed results to say only what they want and not give true accurate info.
