Google Play Store. ESET is giving all users a free 30 day trial to start.
Google has announced their plans and system to curb all of that. They are calling it the Android Market Bouncer -- like that guy in a suit standing by the door.
Mobile Security app, already available in the Android Market. Like always the company is looking to expand its offerings, and the latest comes in Norton Tablet Security, set to release soon for $39.99, recurring every year. Though it's marketed as a tablet app, Tablet Security will work on all Android 2.2 Froyo devices and later.
here and there but this takes things to a whole new level. Previous virus applications would mine user data and passwords and that is pretty bad I must admit, but this newly found app appears to record your actual phone calls -- not cool!
Google removed around two dozen applications from the market because of more Malware and virus problems. Apparently there were leftovers from the "DroidDreamLight" malware and Google had to flip the switch and remove them for our protection. It looks like more details are emerging about another version that works just the same way and they are calling this "DroidKungFu".
Geinimi Trojan making its way around the Android world has been analyzed those superheroes of mobile security: Lookout (or lookout, with the lower-case L if you please.) Making a big bad name for themselves since their inception, this is definitely a power-play on the part of those that plant the nice green leaf at the upper-left of your Android screen. They've taken the time to take apart the trojan for your pleasure and so that you might be smart when it comes to avoiding or, god forbid, dealing with it.
Lookout, the Geinimi malware is installed as a side-effect of compromised third-party applications; these have been found in Chinese app stores. Installed, the trojan sends the phone's location coordinates and unique identifiers for the device (IMEI) and SIM card (IMSI) to remote servers. Titles in the Android Market are clean, however, so only those users who side-load apps onto their smartphones should be at risk. Still, it's a good idea to check the security permissions on each app rather than blindly stab at the OK button, since these compromised Geinimi titles ask for far more access to your phone than a regular app might.
