using scare tactics by spreading FUD. His concerns are always valid. Malicious apps have snuck into the app store in spite of the vetting process, and they've definitely gotten into the Play store. Just look at brightest flashlight.
It simply reminded me of how most articles about security breaches in Apple products start with click-bait headlines that make it sound like "run for the hills, Apple's security is broken, broken I tell you!" - and then turn out to be about "proofs of concept" that have barely (or never) occurred "in the wild" - or involve users having to do something stupid, etc., etc. - and that Apple security is still just fine.
So when the poster states "Perhaps you should start looking at these issues as a rational and objective viewer, and not take a stance as an anti-Apple, pro-Android troll." it might behoove him to begin his own citation with, "While these examples involve users loading pirated versions of software...." As otherwise, the implication overstates the threat to Play Store users who "play" by the rules.
