Nasty Android Trojan Discovered
i bet the author of the trojan is...
Thus why The Market exists.
What... out of the goodness of their heart, Google created the Android Marketplace for user's safety?
just another excuse for another round of Android vs iOS handbags....
i do most of my banking, keep credit card / financial information and tons of work stuff on my phone .. why wouldn't someone want to...
- The official Android Market is the safer place to get your software. You do take a risk when getting software from other sources.
- Always, always pay attention to the security/privacy permissions that you grant when you install an app. It's easy to just dismiss that alert it as an annoying step, but it's very important. That's the security built into Android that is supposed to keep you safe from misbehaving software.
concern is legitimate
I realize that for now this is limited to China and is not impacting the USA. I also get that the Android Market is not impacted by this, again, at least for now.
This all said, I do believe that concern by people like me is legitimate. Perhaps this is why I don't sell, nor will I my Blackberry.

and when the first Blackberry virus hits you'll be doing what?
As with PC's, 90% or more of malware is installed because the user is visiting the 'shadier' parts of the Internet
I have been using Trojans for years 😎
