Says about vulnerability. Its independent of popularity, number of users,number of apps in store, number of celebrity users etc...

Seems like you played dumb and you are responsible for your own stupididy. And enjoy your limited crApple.
People who write comments seem to forget one simple fact: if you have an android or ios device, that doesn't mean that they are secure nor that the truth is what you believe. You don't want to see the fact that both android or ios are not as secure as WP? That's your problem and doesn't change the fact that they are not very secure. The security problems of android are clobaly well known and in documentaries (ie 'Terms and conditions may apply") they prove that ios is a very easy to crack os. The WP OS has a combination of security that others don't. That's one of the reasons that's not so popular: most devs don't want security, they want an open system that allows them to ask whatever permission they want for their "free" apps (like android). In BBC they recently descover that 10 most popular flashlight apps in android all had malicious beheviour.
Also the WP OS is the only one with sandboxed security system. According to that every app uses it's own space and can not take data from any other app. MS in their privacy statement clarify that personal data are not being sold. Google on the other hand...

My debit card was compromised right after I started to use it with my Nexus 7. Before I used it only for iPad, there was no problems. Go figure.
So - do we have a conflict of interest here? That this guy is bashing all other OSes than the one that his company provides security software for?

Many people enjoy simplicity and responsiveness over cluttering their smartphones with useless launchers and widgets. Fast is a trait Android will never have.
Oncom, 11 Jun 2015Windows Who..? Never heard that name.Douche or troll? You tell me who you are?

Many of us heard that linux is more secure than windows os. But in reality, linux has not enough users so it not worth to make a virus for it. Windows OS being popular in as a desktop os is the target all kind of nasty malware.

I use an android device for the past 2 years and never ever installed any antivirus crap. Antivirus just sucks your battery life and constantly run in background eating your ram.
I want to see this man last 24h money transaction i bet you will see a big deposit under Micro$oft name.
What a shame, money can buy people so easy.
It means WP is not that popular and those hackers are not interested hehe!
Who would've saw this coming, no one hacks mac as much because not a lot of people use them, now it's windows turn for mobile
Do you want to introduce an app for iOS, well pay $99 and get developer licence and start creating an app. Instead of doing that, don't stick poster for yourself.
From Day 1, Windows needs anti-virus softwares, that has extended to mobiles too. For this post, well microsoft will sue you b*******.
Where is Norton, Mcafee, K7, well people better put "Like" to this post, please don't fill up GSMARENA, we are looking for good NEWS's not POSTERS.
