I assume the question is the title of this thread - in which case I would suggest that the best thing for you to do is to ask the Angry Birds producers. As it seems very popular, if it causes a security problem then there are likely to be a lot of users at risk.
As for "It dont have leader boards" - I'm sorry but I don't understand what you mean.

To Mike's point, here's information about Rovio:
There are also some topics that may answer your concerns here:

I'm Dave Kim, Sr Product Manager for Mobile Security. With the help of our STAR and Marketing teams, we've launched a new website called mobilesecurity.com where we offer users information to help protect themselves. We have blog posts, articles, and cool widgets like the App Permissions Comparison Tool.
You can quickly and simply see what permissions an app has and compare it to any other app on the Android Market. While this won't tell you which app to use, it may help raise important questions like this one.
Let us know what you think of it!

Sorry to come back so late on this one but I have been trying the site you refer to so that I could download the beta and test it. However I can only find how to comment on it, not how to obtain it. Is the Beta still for testing?
Also slightly puzzled why it has not appeared in the Norton Mobile Beta forums. It would appear that I have missed something.

I seem to have missed this post of yours until now, being the introduction
of the Norton Mobile Security Beta Apps Permission Widget.
Great idea that could also be very useful perhaps as a Widget for NMS
or NMU users on their Android Devices or as a new Symantec Norton App.
Tried to post comment on Website for App Permmission Widget but
each time i was told undefined or something like that, filled out all info but

My thanks to smithy for making me realise that the Widget is not a widget for a phone but a widget on the website! Never thought of trying to fill in the spaces on the screen! :-(
I agree with Smithy this would make an interesting addition to NMS or NAT but I can see that you may want to keep it on the servers to get the data.
Did not seem to work on all apps. But that could be me ... again. ;-)
