From Publishing Executive - 25% of all Android apps pose a security risk.
“Security research firm Bit9 today released a new research report showing that more than 100,000 Android applications in the Google Play store—25 percent—pose a security risk to mobile device users and the enterprise networks to which they connect.
“In its examination of the more than 400,000 Android apps, Bit9 found that 72 percent use at least one high-risk permission. In addition, the company found that:
42 percent of applications access GPS location data, and these include wallpapers, games and utilities
31 percent access phone calls or phone numbers
26 percent access personal data, such as contacts and email
9 percent use permissions that can cost the user money”
