With this automation system, we have stocked about 2,000 Android malicious files.
The number of Android malicious apps is more than we thought.

We already know that the number of Android malicious file is rapidly increasing from the beginning in the second half; however, certain malicious file aiming at Korean users hasn't been reported.
Therefore, Korean users are not familiar with these security threats.

December 6, 2011, Google announced that the number of cumulative download on Android market passed 10 billion downloads. And APK files are spreading on 3rd party market.

According to Google's announcement, Korea ranked #1, which means that South Korea is the most prevalent country on using smartphone.
The fact that China isn't ranked in this table is peculiar, however, it can mean that the great number of users are using 3rd party in China.
