Where do these people get these ideas? First thing that comes to my mind is that MS phones will be the ones to get virii, keyloggers and whatever else.
I understand that Windows Phone and Windows RT are pretty well locked-down. Can only install approved and curated apps via the MS app store, just like Apple's iOS. They're certainly not like desktop Windows. And those OSs are very much in a minority at the moment, and probably for the foreseeable future.

If anything, it'll be Android that gets the keyloggers, spyware, malware, etc, It's already happened in China. Because it's usually open and is currently the most popular mobile OS. If you just install apps from Google Play, or other known good/safe sources, should be OK.
