Probably another cryptic "need around twelve different factors to at least install" kind of virus, so it may be more relative to really old and unsuported devices.

there are a lot of android devices out there....and when you get into low end devices, which make up a large majority, you enter the land of poorly integrated OSes/changes to the OS with lots of holes and people who arent educated about not installing "bobs virus 9000" from "billys app store".

i would assume with the info ive seen so far that the 10million are on older or low end setups...but, i could be wrong.

Coming from a desktop to a smartphone, i quickly realized there were very limited privacy plugins etc for chrome and firefox..so i found this browser--- dolphin zero ---...after i use it i can exit and it shreds all my browsing data..i think its the most secure option for android browsers at this point.

Sounds like a pretty serious case. Although, the worst one I have read about so far was that one that came bundled with a lot of software and sent out signals to other devices or some such. I don't remember the details, but with the amount of stuff our smartphones do for us these days I think it's incredibly important to not be carefree when using it.
