“Almost Every Android Device Is Malware Infected” says BT

BTJill Knesek, head of the global security practice at British Telecom (BT) said at the NetEvents Americas some comments which we hardly believe.

She said:

We analyzed more than 1,000 Android applications and found a third compromised with some form of active or dormant malware. Almost every device is compromised with some kind of malware, although often it’s not clear if that code is active or what it is doing

Which is a little hard to believe, and really pushes what BT’s idea of “malware” is, and where this metric has come from (if anywhere). It’s also good to know that Google and BT don’t have a good relationship, so it could just be chatter.
