The long-held belief that Android is the least secure of mobile OSes was shattered by security researcher and expert iOS hacker Jonathan Zdziarski over the weekend. He unveiled a host of iOS vulnerabilities, the scope of which was staggering: undocumented services that bypass backup encryption and can be accessed both via USB and wirelessly; a means to access all data encrypted with data protection if the device has not been rebooted since the user's PIN was last entered; and a packet sniffer that can be monitored remotely over WiFi.

Yea, he called out DOCUMENTED API's and developer features - what an idiot. So, no worries, Android is still the most insecure mobile OS - 99.7% of all mobile malware is for Android, .1% for Windows and the rest ... so, you can either put all your trust in a guy who sent out a press release ... I'm sure you believe zombies were on that flight and the American illuminati blew up the plane.

Would you license your personal data to advertising platforms if you were paid directly for it?
Yes -- So much of my personal data is already in the hands of advertisers anyhow; I may as well be paid for it.
Possibly -- It depends how much I would be compensated and how the data I authorize to share would be used and protected.
No -- I would not sell my personal data at any price.
