How long is long enough?

A recent complaint filed on Tuesday by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) with the Federal Trade Commission, requested that the agency investigate the US's four major wireless carriers into their practice of providing Android updates to customers. The ACLU are concerned that a large majority of Android handset users are being left behind in the update curve. This means that there are an alarming number of people that are exposed to an ever increasing amount of Android malware due to software left unpatched as a result of the lack of updates.
