Google’s bold claims that Android doesn’t have a malware problem and is more secure than Apple’s iOS have singularly failed to convince security researchers.
No less a figure than Eric Schmidt, Google’s executive chairman, declared Android to be “more secure” than the iPhone, during the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo in Orlando, Florida. The claim drew hoots of derision from the tech savvy crowd, USA Today reports. Schmidt’s remarks are recorded in a YouTube clip here.
The apparent charm offensive continued with Android security chief, Adrian Ludwig, presenting a last-minute paper at the Virus Bulletin conference in Berlin last week entitled Android – practical security from the ground up, and summarised by Steven Max Patterson of Networkworld in a story complete with explanatory diagrams here.
