This is often why I prefer using mobile websites with the mobile browser. It's hard to tell what exactly apps are doing on your phone.
But I suppose even then, you have to be careful of malicious websites.
Maybe I'll just stay inside today...
I am blown away by the number of third-party app stores... WHY do people use these things? Maybe I'm just not adventurous enough, but the Play Store has always suited me just fine.
So they share the information with the world, and then they get surprised when people use that information? Smart, Symantec.
I absolutely agree but with one exception. the only time ive ever used was for one dev who got his apps removed from the play store which of course was an emulator. I trusted his apps and he put a lot of work into them. Other than that its just plain silly to do it otherwise.
Let me start off by saying this one word..."China"
so there are tons off knocks and fakes of different products that are made over there all the time. my point of this is that this malware is being found in "legitimate applications being distributed on android marketplaces(indicating multiple when you should clearly be getting it from the play store) in china. ill repeat again in "china". so yeah if im not mistaking i dont know if they have access to the play store or not but this is as mentioned in the article being reported on by a company that makes money off this kind of propaganda if you will.
