    Re: Android OS & Apps having lots of Security Threats & Vulnerability

    Hey this would be a nice thread if many of them would like to share up about the threats and how to solve them. This thread would be helping many of the newbies having problem with the android OS and the android application. Ok so I would be sharing up with my problem and threats which I have been facing much time and how I have solved that. Well once I was facing a problem like my android market wasn’t working and they were not able to get connected to the market or can say internet even when I downloaded it again and even when I did the restore setting and still the problem remained.
    This was solved by downloading the firmware and then updating the OS solved the problem and then thing you have to take care is do just do it from your Smartphone you need to do it from the PC by connecting it in with the computer by USB and then update the OS and that would solve the problem.

    Re: Android OS & Apps having lots of Security Threats & Vulnerability

    Hello friends I have come through the an infected version of Google's Android Market Security Tool March 2011 is floating around the "black markets" it basically means that they are not in the Android market but still it had been floating around the net in the Apk forms and they haven’t been worst like the DroidDream, droiddream has been a bad application and they have been very infectious but the Google's Android Market Security Tool March 2011 is not much like it but it is an Malware for sure and it has been said as the Fake 10086" malware. so I think you need to be away from such tools too .

    Yap surely that is right that the problem has been arise because many of the members have been interested in using the antivirus but they have a specific reason for that and that is the 3rd party security tools has been found making the phone slow. And so no one has been interested in using it and I hope that google would be making the market faster and safer and reducing the malicious and vulnerability applications.

    I have been suing the lookout and the kaspersky and they haven’t slowed my phone and they have been a very nice malicious detector and they have kept me very safe till now and may be that’s the reason I haven’t found any problem with my phone till now.
