From research Bit9, emerges as the 12 smartphones are all vulnerable to the world of Android.

The result is that 56% of Android users have an outdated version of the operating system and thus are vulnerable to additional risks than those relating to the misuse of the product. On the other hand, Apple warrants the supported devices to the latest version of iOS, which includes the bug fixes related to discovered security flaws.

This is damaging because of the same company in Mountain View, which is likely to find an image not too dissimilar to that of Microsoft’s desktop on the security front. You must make at least the obligatory bugfix updates, in a time frame acceptable. This malware will not disappear, nor will the system completely safe even from careless use, but it certainly will help you better manage the situation.
