Google’s latest update for Android, 4.1 Jelly Bean, aims to be suitably protected from malware attacks.
The beefed-up defence is designed to protect users from attacks and virus installs from unsafe websites and apps.
Security researcher, Jon Oberheide said that Jelly Bean is the first version of Android to properly utilise the protection system, known as Address Space Layout Randomisation, or ASLR.
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which featured ASLR but was incorrectly coded, became susceptible to malware attacks.
Jelly Bean aims to rectify that by sealing off the options and pathways for hacking opportunities.
