There have been security concerns before, such as over the air updates. Updates can be pushed to a phone with the right hardware and software making Android phones more vulnerable than others. There is a way to help protect your phone and Google accounts though, that's the beauty of Google.

Description of 2-step verification from Google:

"2-step verification adds an extra layer of security to your Google Account by requiring you to have access to your phone – as well as your username and password – when you sign in. This means that if someone steals or guesses your password, the potential hijacker still can't sign in to your account because they don't have your phone."
