Bit9 highlighted the most vulnerable popular smartphones in use today. The devices on the list pose the most serious security and privacy risk to consumers and corporations.

In the report, Android phones own the list, accounting for every single spot, 1-12, in the “Dirty Dozen” list of most vulnerable mobile devices; with the Samsung Galaxy Mini taking the top spot, and the HTC Desire and the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 rounding out the top three.

Fifty six percent of Android phones in the marketplace today are running out-of-date and insecure versions of the Android operating system software. The study found that smartphone manufacturers such as Samsung, HTC, Motorola and LG often launch new phones with outdated software out of the box, and they are slow to upgrade these phones to the latest and most secure versions of Android.
