Google has begun the task of removing the ‘Dream Droid’ malware from its Android operating system. It is the first noteworthy viruses to hit the Android operating system infecting over 250,000 handsets have downloaded the virus
I am aware there is an article on this but I feel mine is better written, more informative and also questions aspects of the Android approval process.
hopefully the apps approval process will improve and get more restricted, for our own safety...
I agree. I don't see how Google get away with barely any user interaction (i.e. approval processes). It needs to be added ASAP.
Out of curiosity... Has anyone, who has an Android phone and was infected, received the patch yet?
Approval process was not implemented because it is open source...however a simple screening process could not hurt.
kinda scary... i wonder if i have this downloaded on my phone.
