Security company G Data says that a new piece of Android malware is discovered every 10 seconds. At this rate, the company is predicting that there will be 3,500,000 new malicious Android files by the end of the year.The threat level for users with smartphones and tablets with an Android operating system remains high.

The problem is that third party providers do not adapt the new operating system for older devices (“older” in this case meaning one year or more).
