This is awful news,
like Microsoft abandoning Windows XP users to spyware and hackers
now google are doing the same -
do they expect everybody to landfill their old phones and buy new ones?

It just wont happen.


Google cuts back on Android security fixes

Millions of Android users could be at risk as Google cuts back on security 
updates for older versions of its smartphone operating system.

The risk arises because Google has stopped producing security updates for 
parts of those older versions.

About 60% of all Android users, those on Android 4.3 or older, will be 
affected by the change.
