Android Malware Taken To The Next Level

Its no secret that the assorted Android marketplaces are the world headquarters for nasty bits of malware. I assume that most Android users are expecting this and are ready to wipe and restore their phone now and again as a regular part of the ownership experience. But now things have taken a somewhat grimmer turn as an app has appeared on the Google Play market that will not only infect your phone, it will go the extra mile and infect your traditional computer too.

Ouch.

    Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if
    you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you prevent it, any
    plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any help is very much appreciated.

      Just do what I did to your spam comment: Strip out the URL you included and post it as is. The company that you are spamming for gets downvoted in search engine results thanks to the new “duplicates” rules in the Google search rankings, and my blog gets upvoted in the same results because of the missing spam URL.

      I move up, and you get nothing. Easy peasy.

    Malware includes computer viruses, ransomware, worms, trojan horses, rootkits, keyloggers, dialers, spyware, adware, malicious BHOs, rogue security software and other malicious programs; the majority of active malware threats are usually worms or trojans rather than viruses. In law, malware is sometimes known as a computer contaminant, as in the legal codes of several U.S. states.—`

    Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for
    this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
