The final part in this week’s security roundup.

Special Android subsection:

  • Android anti-virus sucks (via HNTV).  Only one of the seven anti-virus applications picked up even a third of the various pieces of malware tested.  We’re not talking about 0-day exploits, either—this is stuff which is all in the wild.
  • Android facial recognition can be fooled by a photo of the person.
  • There is certainly a market for secure Android and iPhone devices, so I hope this Bizztrust phone is legit and takes off.  With RIM having blown away both feet, there’s a gap in the market for phones which you can trust your CxOs (not to mention IT staff) to have.
