    As an Android user, and maybe this is just because I am security aware (Read paranoid), I am not to worried. I use an AV (WebRoot), I use FDE (WhisperCore), I use a firewall (WhisperMonitor), I use Selective Permissions (part of WhisperCore), and I do NOT install random things in the market. The last one is easy and is key. Android needs you (90% or the time) to actually install the malware. READ the comments, reviews, ratting, description and permissions.

    Also you can use the Android Emulator on Mac, windows, linux to test the app and scan it with an AV or two just to be sure. Also I would never pirate on android huge issue their.

    Java and Adobe at the top of the security vulnerability list? Not worried =p Chrome takes care of Flash for me and EMET + Comodo + Mamutu all lock Java down.

    Wonderful to see Windows 7 isn't at the top of the list. The fact is that I can secure 3rd party applications infinitely but I can't do too much to secure the OS.
