Androids Dream of Electric Malware, Wake Up in Cold Sweat

view story

http://www.linuxinsider.com – Google has reportedly pulled several Android mobile applications that were lousy with malware from its official Android Market. This follows a report earlier this week from Lookout Mobile Security, which claimed it found dozens of apps in the market that contained malicious code. The suspect apps appear to be from the same developers who created DroidDream, the malware that hit Google in early March and was also discovered by Lookout. However, the new malware payload appears to be a stripped-down version of DroidDream, which Lookout has christened "DroidDream Light." (General)
