Default Android virus does not exist???

It seems like XDA users generally agree that such thing as Android virus never exists.
But what about all those FDI documents and articles that talk about Android virus and vulnerabilities? All they the one who is wrong?

A lot of the vulnerabilities have to do with a back door or hole in the android system. This allows hackers to easily access ur phone and info. There are apks with malicious code out there or programs (Saurik IT made one) designed to use these vulnerabilities and access ur info. So there's Android "viruses" perse. But a lot of the viruses just load ur phone with ads
