Based off what? I've herd it all before it doesn't mean it's true. Apple and others have just made up stuff like this before remember their TV commercials. Like Apple is more secure (Pwn2Own) and they don't get viruses (iBotNet), or like they don't crash (gray screen of death). iPhones have these same problems, or did you guys forget about the SMS viruses, Wifi viruses, or app viruses, or leaked info from apps? Some of those very things were posted here in the News section. Instead of denying these problems or spreading misinformation like Apple does. Android has some very good free anti-viruses. I would rather have Android battle it with anti-viruses, than Apple denying they exist with misinformation, or pointing fingers at others.

lol, considering apache controls a majority of the server based market share globally no one writes malware or viruses for linux because of its open sourced nature and the imputations that affect it of having only two user types(root or not root), and low volume of binary only products in the environment

Bad argument. Servers simply access resources that are requested from them - it's much easier to make them secure, for example if you close all ports on a linux server apart from 22 and 80, the only ways that the attacker would be able to exploit you is through the SSH and web servers - Linux doesn't come into it. In that respect, the attack vector is just Apache and usually sshd.

With servers, you don't have the moron who finds they have a 'virus infection' and so downloads 'Antivirus 2011 Professional' in order to sort it out. With a desktop, the attack vector is far larger - it effectively extends through every piece of software on the system.

You also seem to misunderstand what a security issue can be. In a Windows sense, security tends to be having a virus take control of your computer and start sending spam emails to others.

You wouldn't need root in order to upload all of the victim's emails, web history, browser cookies, and personal documents.

Lets ignore the main point of my post and focus on what was a categorical slip.

IOS, of course its a more secure platform, the genius and engineering of the CISCO engineers and the sheer number of security levels makes it the best internetwork opera.... wait, oh we're talking about the apple iOS.....


It's funny how Apple tends to STEAL trademarked names from Cisco.

Their mindset is probably along the lines of: "Oh, nobody really knows or cares about that, so of course we can just use the name, screw the trademarks."

For all we know this argument can be as flimsy as the argument that wikipedia is innaccurate.

It is by virtue that it is open source that it could be more secure.

Plus, its not like apple has a good track record. Their mobile devices have already been jailbroken so hackers do understand the code, and was it not last march or april that 100,000 someodd gmail accounts had been hacked through the brand new ipad?

And finally, this is a server security company. Them claiming to be experts in server security does not make them experts in mobile device security any more then standing in a garage makes me a car.

Its 'sort of' open source, afaik you can't just pull down a copy of android trunk. You can however download the released versions. Firefox is open source, thus the nightly builds -- android, not so much.

It was an ATT Web Service, not an Apple issue.
