Sound strange? Must be Android.
@Skypilot strange... What android version is this? 🤔
@Skypilot i have android 7 (nougat) and there isn t this block 🤔
Ouch. Time to upgrade that bad boy. Android 10 is out.
@Skypilot my smartphone works well, i don t need a new one 🤓
Not your phone, your OS. Outdated software is a common malware infection vector. But, most carriers won't bother to upgrade Android because there's no incentive to do so. Which is the main reason why there is a lot of outdated Android devices like yours out there.
Apple sends updates direct to users, no carrier middleman, so there are less outdated iOS devices in the wild.
@Skypilot ok, basically you are right but is there any sense to poisoning a windows xp today (for example)? Has more sense to send malware to the actual majorities of hardware and software
No because those vulnerabilities have been fixed in current versions. That is why outdated software is a security risk.
