Android is a mobile Operating System (OS) developed by Google based on the Linux kernel. The OS was initially developed by Android, Inc. with the backing of Google in 2005. After three years of development, the first Android based mobile phone was available for sale in November of 2008. As of today, the Android operating system has been installed on over 1.4 billion devices, and is currently the most widely used computer operating system in the world. Due to the constantly increasing number of Android specific malware and other exploits, it has also become the most targeted and most vulnerable.
