Avast prepping Android client

Posted on Monday, June 27 2011 @ 22:18:50 CEST by


CNET had a chat with Avast about the company's plans for the cloud and the Android operating system, you can read it over here.
Given Android's skyrocketing marketshare, it's not surprising that Avast is working on an Android security app, too. What's interesting is that Avast is aiming specifically for users who have rooted their phones. "Rooted phones are more prone to certain kinds of attacks," said Vlcek, "because they are more able to run a wider range of programs. We consider people with rooted phones higher-risk users, and so they need more security. Fifteen [percent] to 20 percent of Android phones are rooted, including the Nexus which comes rooted."
