McAfee Reports iOS Is More Secure Then Android

Previously Symantec claimed that Android is not more secure than iOS and now Anti-Virus maker McAfee have reported that iOS devices which include iPhone,iPod,and iPad still remain unaffected with the growing Malware attacks and viruses as compared to Android.The amount of malware targeted at Android devices jumped by 76% since last quarter, making it the most attacked mobile operating system.

Vincent Weafer, senior vice president of McAfee Labs, says,
This year we’ve seen record breaking numbers of malware, especially on mobile devices, where the uptick is in direct correlation to popularity.
What about malware on iOS? So far, while Android malware has spiked (with 44 cases in Q2), iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches have remained safe and untouched.
 The above is the chart of Q2 of 2011 which shows that iOS and Web OS got 0% Malware attacks as compared to Android which got 44% and the number of Maware is increasing time to time.

According to TIPB :
The difference seems largely explained by how Apple runs their platform — as a closed, closely inspected garden that makes it far more difficult for malicious apps to make it into the App Store and through to consumers. Google, meanwhile, has a far more open ecosystem that allows far more types of apps in the Market, including some that ought not be allowed.

Apple’s iOS may offer a significant amount of security, but jailbreaking your phone or iPad removes that safety net, potentially making it as vulnerable as an Android device.
