Android developers now banned from bypassing Google's Play Store app updates
Google on Friday changed one of its Play Store policies to prevent apps from
being updated outside of its marketplace. The company states that "an app
downloaded from Google Play may not modify, replace or update its own APK
binary code using any method other than Google Play's update mechanism."
1) this is for only apps that are distrubited via Google play does not
apply to apps distrubited outside of Google play
2) this is not all that bad of a condition when you look at it from a
none-technical person point of view, this opens the gate for Google to do
a quick scan of data uploaded to the Play store for posable melware (if
google ever decides to do this) and this could prevent the app from
downloading melware it self and replacing itself with a new apk that
could harm the phone.

iPhone developer: App Store rewards "crap" apps
By Zach Spear
Published: 10:00 AM EST
A software engineer who wrote what he calls a "terrible" and "crap" app in
less time than it typically takes to eat lunch has since watched it shoot to
the top of Apple's App Store, where it's now generating over $200 an hour
despite being a free download.
22-year-old High Gloss has worked on more than 20 other iPhone apps for an
iPhone software developer. After running out of ideas to make his own app,
he looked through the Top 100 apps for inspiration. (He uses a pseudonym to
keep his personal efforts separate from his work with the aforementioned
iPhone software developer). In just 20 minutes, he wrote Sound Grenade
(Free, App Store), which is currently listed third under the top free apps,
in the wild card category of "Utilities".
Written in 20 minutes
"The goal of my app was to create a tool for people to annoy others," Gloss
wrote in a blog entry at his website. He set a one-hour time limit to write
and upload it to Apple. "The end product was Sound Grenade, which is a
really terrible app, one button turns a sound on or off, period. For 20
minutes' work, I thought it would be interesting to take the ride."
The app took off quickly on its first day.
"You can imagine my shock when I checked the App Store page on the first day
to see 50 glowing reviews. Two...Apple: an 'App Store' Is Not a Store For Apps

that, based on their common meaning, the words "app store" together

stores. We've previously discussed this ongoing legal battle."
Reminds me of a wintroll who once stated that the meanng of the word

that security is a binary thing! The name just skips me at the

I do not own an iOS device, so I'm talking about the Mac App Store here.
However iOS users may have similar experiences so read on.
One week ago I downloaded the free miDVD app from the Mac App Store.
It's a very, very bare-bones DVD creator, and I was pretty sure of its
limitations from the get-go.
After a couple of days I wrote a short lukewarm review of the app and
posted it to the App Store. I compared it with similar free and payware
products including iDVD, mentioning the fact the iLife '09 is still

When it comes to avoiding malicious apps on Linux Android, conventional
wisdom holds that users should not stray from the Google Play store.
TrustGo's previous report cast doubt on this, placing Google as the fifth
safest Linux Android app store. The European marketplace, Aproov, continues
to hold the top spot. The biggest, and most surprising change, was Amazon's
marketplace slipping from number two to number four.

"50 million smartphones leak by Viber app

A popular app that is installed on at least 50 million Linux Android
smartphones and tablets allows attackers to bypass the lock screen and full
control over the device can get. The problem is in the Viber app, which
allows users free to send messages and pictures and can call.
Globally, 175 million people use the app. On Google Play, the app between 50
and 100 million once downloaded.
To bypass the lock, an attacker must send a message to the victim-Viber.
This Viber the keyboard appears.
Eventually, this makes it possible to obtain full control.access
The vulnerability has been tested on HTC Sensation XE, Google Nexus 4,
Samsung Galaxy S2 and Sony Xperia Z
The Vietnamese anti-virus company Bkav discovered the problem and warned the
developer of Viber, but has still received no response.Users are advised to
keep their phone with them and to give to anyone. Also, one should install
the update once available."
Well, of course COLA morons like Kohltard and Grufftard are going to claim
that the *175 million users* are to blame *NOT* the OS!

On forums for cybercriminals is a program which offered the possibility of

attackers an infected device can control remotely. Thus Linux AndroRAT

Once an unsuspecting user installs the infected app is installed

cases in which legitimate apps from the remote access tool were provided.
Worldwide, it is a few hundred infections, mainly in the United States, and
"The development of remote access tools on the Android platform was
predicted," says Andrea Lelli Symantec. "Although Linux AndroRAT still not
very refined, it has the growing popularity and open source code has the
potential to be a dangerous threat."

There is one thing that is not clear to me.
Android is developed by google and android includes (i.e., google included
in android) many stock apps for basic tasks. I think to, for example,
mail user agent, browser, note keeper, calendar app.
What is the reason, then, for google to provide alternative to these?
Of course, I am not refering to third party apps available in the play

so many of these linux android phones are getting infected that even google

Market version of Android Market security app detected to have malware
Experts from the antivirus company Symantec have found as alternate market
version of Android Market Security Tool, which instead of performing
anti-virus functions is loaded with malware for data theft from the owner of
Android-Smartphones and Tablet PCs, said a statement by Symantec.
Android Market Security Tool app was released by Google last week to repair
the damage caused by hacker attacks on online application store Android
Market. A modified version of the program, detected by Symantec, not only
does not fulfill its primary purpose (removal of other malware from your
Android system), but it also has dangerous functions. In particular, this
new sample of malicious software can send personal information of smartphone
owner to a remote server, as well as block incoming calls and messages from
certain mobile numbers.
According to unofficial information, more than 260 thousand Android
smartphones and Tablet PCs were infected by this alternate 'security app'
