    Thanks for the articlle. Ya gotta be careful. I know many people who install lots of apps from any old place without a second thought just to try it out... games, shopping helpers, music, movie apps etc etc.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    After several years of Android, I recently went Apple. It's not perfect, and I miss some Android features, but security/bug patch-wise, Apple does a better job. And that was what motivated me in the end...

    The article specifically mentions third-party apps stores. Those are inherently insecure, so this shouldn't be a surprise.
