Mobile Device Security
Downloading malicious applications can also lead to malware in mobile phones. It is important that not only the users but also the developers—a mobile app development company follow a stringent security policy to prevent apps from getting infected.

Re: OS updates
Another issue with the update treadmill is each update I've seen contains more bloatware, that can't be removed without root access. I don't want m$ products, ESPN and a bunch of other crap on my device. I treat every app as a potential security hole, and if the app is not on my device it can't be exploited!

OS updates
I have a bone to pick about OS updates. Vital for good security? Sure. But it's a self-created issue because the vendor then begins to treat the old OS as good as abandonware.

Which wouldn't be so bad except that so many OS updates are more feature driven than security driven such that, in my experience, they tend to be progressively worse.

Which then causes people to want to update less -- which leads to bad security.

Mobile OS teams: Want to improve security on your products? Fire all the elitist, desperate-to-win-an-award UX/UI jerks.
