Automatically spreading Android malware

May 03, 2012  Security Suite

Experts are warning Android users about a new type of threat to their operating systems. Until now, Android users installed the malware themselves with the presumption that it was a credible application. Today, though, the malware acts like malware which would typically be found attacking a desktop or laptop--the user visits a compromised website, its malware infects the computer, and the user has no idea about it. The best defense against these types of attacks is to set the "unknown sources" item to disabled by default. In this instance, the user installs the application only from Google® Play. It is recommended that "unknown sources" be enabled only for trusted sources.
