New Android Malware Infects 1 Million Handsets

A new strain of Android malware has surfaced. Experts estimate it has infected about 1 Million handsets, but only about 1000 are in the US. We should probably note that the malicious software was not downloadable from the Google Play store, it was only available through third party distributors. These sites are less popular in the US, but it appears the vast majority of infected phones are in Asia. This should be one more reason to use approved app stores instead of third party stores.
