    I wonder where are the rest? No one wants to challenge the findings in the report?

    The reason I post this thread is because I find it provides a solid ground for those with an alternative viewpoint...as compared to the other view that one needs to run an AV on Android given how widespread malware is on the platform.

    I guess both sides of the argument are valid...there are situations where an AV may be warranted and others where it is overrated.
    It is just that one needs to understand where the other party is coming from. You can look at it at the glass as half-empty or half-full.
