There've been stories about *privacy* issues on iOS - like what Apple tracks/records - but nothing regarding NON-jailbroken iPhones that I've seen.

 

According to what I have read, there have been. Remember, Apple is not immune to malware. No such entity is 100% safe. 

 

NO OS is 100% secure.

Exactly. The arrogance of Apple fanboys is really amazing. 


FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

Links?  I don't believe the Apple fanboys can surpress the media either.

More on topic to me is that the basic problem with connecting anything to a hotspot involves sending un-encrypted data over the air. This means that passwords and anything else you send can easily be intercepted, and man-in-the middle attacks are possible as well. For these reasons I try to be very careful what I use hotspots for and try to use VPN on my PC whenever possible.

That's not always as effective as it sounds either, some sites only use HTTPS for the login and then redirect to insecure sites that leave you vulnerable.

I've never run an AV client on any of my Android devices.

Don't download things from places you don't know.

 

This.

Ditto for me. I'm on my third Android phone and have never had a security issue. Common sense is your best defense.

From the article: "Flashback was a nightmare scenario for Mac devotees who were used to believing that their devices were immune to malware. At least 600,000 Macs worldwide were silently infected at the beginning of the year by the Flashback Trojan, which masqueraded as an Adobe Flash browser plug-in. Flashback succeeded in stealing thousands of usernames and passwords. Even though malware is increasing in iOS, it still remains relatively low compared with other operating systems."

 

It take less than five minutes to download and install a free AV app.

Interesting article that's over a year old and the only 'proof' of their headline is the statement "Even though malware is increasing in iOS, it still remains relatively low compared with other operating systems."

 

There's something true in the statement that 'You can't believe everything you read on the internet".

Kinda defeats the purpose of asking for links then.

No, in reading that headline, you'd think there'd be hundreds of links that are valid and believable.  So far, that's the only one presented and it doesn't offer a lot of proof.
