@Skypilot i have android 7 (nougat) and there isn t this block 🤔

@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 Outdated software is a common malware infection vector.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 Which is the main reason why there is a lot of outdated Android devices like yours out there.

Apple sends updates direct to users, no carrier middleman, so there are less outdated iOS devices in the wild.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

@megamind2000

No because those vulnerabilities have been fixed in current versions. That is why outdated software is a security risk.
