F-Droid at

Gotta love this. (TLDR - it's an analysis of Android apps published in various third-party app "stores", all of which were found to contain Malware and Greyware. Well, nearly all. One exception.)

Surprised that Aptoide and Amazon Appstore weren't in there, those are the only ones I've heard about except for F-Droid and Google Play.

@fdroid@identi.ca I really don't think I can trust anything said by an outfit claiming computer expertise that refers to an APK as an "installer". If they don't understand what installs what how can I possibly trust their " undroid" thing. Not to mention that it looks like they just totalled all the "malware" from all sources to get a scary high total that I am sure includes many duplicates. Other then pointing out how clean f-droid is this document is laughable.

I admit I didn't look any further than to note F-Droid's status as an amusement. On a deeper level I'd like to know more about the survey and the actual malicious stuff found.
