  1. the infections vary, however, the most common is the process of gathering user data and copying it. Another is the process of installing programs that will create “zombie phones” to be utilized in the future (sleeper cells). The “DroidDream” app piece of malware is especially virulent because it apparently cannot only capture user and product information from a device but also has the ability to download more code capable of further damage.

    In terms of apps to help protect you, there are many. Look up “security” on the Android market and you will find all manner of apps that can scan your phone, scan incoming emails, texts, provide site ratings, help you lock, wipe and track your phone. They range from free, minimal donations all the way to annual subscriptions. Depending on your needs, many of them would protect you…and certainly something is better than nothing.

    If you would like further advice, feel free to contact me with your mobile device usage and I could point you in a direction in terms of features you may be best served by.

  2. When you refer to “infected” apps, what exactly is the infection? Are these apps stealing personal info or redirecting the browser or installing something in the background? Also, are there any apps on the open market that can guard against these lil nasties?
