itwbennett writes "A new commercial tool designed to allow cybercriminals to easily transform legitimate Android applications into malicious software has hit the underground market, paving the way for cheap and easy development of sophisticated Android malware. Security researchers from Symantec said Wednesday in a blog post that the tool, called Dendroid, is marketed by its creators as an Android remote administration tool (RAT) and is being sold for $300."

    iOS has yet to have a single piece of malware in the wild for it. By keeping the dolts from hosing their own systems, Apple has kept effectively 100% security on their devices going on almost a decade without a single malware occurrence in the wild (other than JBs.)

    Can this be said about any other widespread ecosystem in the computing arena? No malware whatsoever in the wild for that long is a pretty top tier achievement.
