More Android Malware found on Market (and removed)

 According to a new report 26 apps were found to contain an Andorid OS trojan known as DroidDream Light. Thirty to 100K users had download the apps with the trojan on it. The trojan starts up once an infected phone gets a phone call and starts transmitting data to a server. The app would be able to download more once it was activated however I have not seen any reports that it had started downloading more.

 That just goes to show just because its mobile does not mean its Immune to malware. Be sure to make sure your downloading the correct app and not some infected copy cat on your mobile phone. Use the same common sense you use when you download apps to your PC.
