Kaspersky isn't the only one sounding the warnings. Juniper Networks also suggests iOS is at risk. The lack of software protection and a competitive security market leaves users with little protection if malware makes its way through Apple's application vetting process. In the long run, this creates a false sense of security for Apple users and may be an even bigger risk than Android's open model. A failure to accept fallibility is the surest predictor of vulnerability. Apple is far from the only offender when it comes to reluctance to admit security bugs. However, a system without bugs is a developer’s dream that will likely remain a fantasy.
