Do you have an Android base mobile phone?

If the answer is yes, you could be at risk from malicious malware, which according to recent figures, is rife across the operating system.

Security Firm G Data have suggested that over 750,000 apps are known to contain malware. And that is only in the first quarter of 2017!

Android software is open source, which makes it incredibly easy for people to produce malicious software, which can infect your phone.

There are various types of malware including spyware, keyloggers, true viruses, worms or any type of malicious code that infiltrates a computer or phone.

Smartphones using Android software are high risk because unlike Apple, who release security updates frequently, almost as soon as a problem is detected, third party manufacturers can take extremely long times to resolve issues on their phones.

But often the onus is on the end user. If you keep your software up to date, you automatically reduce the risk of attack.

The report claims that many people were infected after the downloaded apps from Google Play. One in particular called “Super Free Android Music Player” could have infected thousands of devices.

To reduce the chance of infection, install a virus checker where possible and keep it up to date.
