New Malware Discovered… In the Official Market
Folks, I warned about 3rd party app sites and DroidKungFu earlier in the week. I cautioned those sites because at that point, no malware was found in the official Market.
Well, NC STATE professors have found TWO new cases of Malware (3 this week). PLEASE READ THIS ARTICLE & SPREAD THE WORD. The Community should know and care about these things. Privacy/Security are at risk.
This is frankly… Concerning.
It’s clear there are many people willing to take advantage of the open policies that Google has afforded our developers. So, I ask you guys… WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT IT?
Do we hope Google tightens the reigns and has the annoying App Review process that Apple has?
Do we just become super protective and not install Apps unless they are well known developers?
Thoughts on a solution?
