Yes, virus companies are playing on your fears to try to sell you bs protection software for Android, RIM and IOS. They are charlatans and scammers. IF you work for a company selling virus protection for android, rim or IOS you should be ashamed of yourself.
If you maintain a platform that allows 'virus companies' to play on your customer's fears by publishing their anti-virus software to your marketplace, you should feel ashamed of yourself.
If you read an analyst report about 'viruses' infecting ios, android or rim, you now know that analyst firm is not honest and is staffed with charlatans. There is probably an exception, but extraordinary claims need extraordinary evidence.
Funny, I never read anything about 'viruses' infecting iOS or "RIM". The hysteria tends to revolve around Android.
