Logic suggests Apple has nothing to do with it; they gain nothing and risk everything. Sounds strange to me. KT Ahhhhh, now I know why my e-mail started sending out viruses to all my contacts not long after I got my phone. Now what do I do? http://gsdclb.org/trojan-horse/trojan-horse-dialer-17-e-help.php

Dan That's great for Google's Android Market but has anyone made sure the virus/trojan infected apps aren't on other Android app stores like AppsLib and Handango? TTM Yes, Google should examine 100% of them, and then develop hash verification libraries. The ROI for apps that are too easily copied while being shoved amongst a mediocre array of background-pattern retreads and soundboard-things is not appealing.
Matthieu Hi, I guess they forgot ABonentendeur. rudyy Ok, we won't blame you. bolek поместите на маркете объявление.напишите антивирус. вы должны нас защитить-ведь мы доверились этому зеленому человечку. многие и не знают про эти вирусы.гугл должен решить проблему найти больные смартфоны и предупредить их Melissa This.
A few more exploits like this and people wont touch an Android as a vector for hassles. Don't get me wrong, this is a huge issue, but there's no point artificially raising the "ANDROID IS TEH INSECURE!!!!111" sentiment more than what is necessary by leaving out key facts The Lookout support team is more than happy to help anyone who thinks they may have been infected, whether they had Lookout installed or not. You (poor) guys should join in. :P Goleador OZ Hi, I'm new with Android, one month ago I bought the HTC Desire HD.
Get Google to do the same, and you'd have exactly what you want I am Root And I would dump Android in a second...... I got chess, :/ Evan Edwards I have Dice Roller, but I believe that (since it is still in the market), that mine is the okay, open source version that is Nobody is saying we should lose the ability to install apps from other sources, and nobody is saying Google should adopt Apple's insane filtering; we just don't want malicous/illegal stuff being Carson Great job guys - I recommend to my readers that they use apps like AVG Antivirus - would that have caught this particular exploit?
All existing users who have Lookout installed and active on their Android phone, are now protected against the DroidDream malware. So beware Martin I am really pissed.

Marketing your product as open-sourced to the general public is akin to telling them that their car has Dual Overhead Cam. There also seem to be some misconceptions about the kind of 'vetting' that Apple do in the App store. why your application needs to “read SMS or MMS, receive SMS, edit SMS or MMS”? NOT!!!
TechKid Is there any android software that will show me a log exactly whats going on on my phone What app did what? http://gsdclb.org/trojan-horse/trojan-horse-dialer-17-h.php I am Root Then why don't you buy from The Evil One of Cupertino, take your whining there and leave all of us with a brain alone. Evan Edwards Agreed...

The post says the apps were removed 5 minutes after knowing about them...? Don't hold back. iOS is based on OS X from a BSD kernel and BSD utilities and many libraries under the same license or LGPL (such as Webkit). http://gsdclb.org/trojan-horse/trojan-horse-dialer-10e.php J.R.
Praveen Agreed users should protect their devices and there is no safeguard against stupidty, but then again you cannot have an authorized channel like android market to have been hosting such Wanted to provide a quick update. It will reboot as a giant Android.
Lookout scanned it and said it was perfectly safe soooooo Lekky The original or the modified one? oh, and lookout mobile security might detect and stop the apk from installing... Let's face it, there is obviously a reasonably large consumer demand for the Android Market model, or it wouldn't be as successful as it is. And that could include the ability to choose the level of risk exposure.
I just hope it doesn't happen again. Most of which wouldn't be caught downloading something that would possibly contain malicious code. Feel free to discuss this over at Droid Forums, or via the comments below. http://gsdclb.org/trojan-horse/trojan-horse-dialer-28-e.php I'm not sure if I installed one of the 20 apps and then deleted it just to try something new.
All because some little s**ts with no morals feel the need to f*** with others. So going to apple does nothing to change the OS on the phone or the security problems on them. Sorry for the long reply but this particular topic has been driving me a little crazy. kip So lookout missed the other apps you identified?
Why is that, exactly? I'm wondering if there is a specific file I can look for to tell if I'm "infected" Any thoughts? teebox17 Have a Droid 2 that as of today the incoming calls cannot be heard when I answer the phone. So you can have control of it!
Six months to catch the person or persons Slap on the wrists or nominal jail term Released and then given an outrageously well paid job in an internet security firm writing EDIT: After some dexing and jaxing, the apps seem to be at least posting the IMEI and IMSI codes to http://18.104.22.168:8080/GMServer/GMServlet, which seems to be located in Fremont, CA. ashok pai nab those evil hackers/ crackers NOW!
