Avast Turns Sights on Android

Internet security giant Avast isn’t satisfied to have over 130 million users on the PC platform, it wants the Android users as well. To accomplish this feat, Avast will be developing a security App aimed specifically at rooted devices. The reasoning behind this is the wider range of Apps, putting the device at greater risk.

We consider people with rooted phones higher-risk users, and so they need more security. Fifteen [percent] to 20 percent of Android phones are rooted, including the Nexus which comes rooted."
