F-Secure, an anti-virus software producer, has released a report that details the saturation of malware content in mobile devices, and it turns out, Google’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android platform was responsible for a whopping 79 percent of all malware intrusions in 2012. Android was also host to 96 percent of the intrusions in the fourth quarter alone.
The second most violated mobile OS was Symbian, a now defunct OS that Nokia (NYSE:NOK) was using before making the switch to Microsoft’s mobile version of Windows.
Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iOS was tied for third with J2ME, with only 0.7 percent of the mobile threat. However, what was not mentioned was that last year signaled the first time that iOS had appeared on the threat report, after staying out completely for the two years prior.
Windows Mobile and Blackberry (NASDAQ:BBRY) came in last place (or first, depending how you look at it), hosting only 0.3 percent of the mobile threats for 2012.
