Jan 15th 2010 10:04PM "On the other hand, apps published on the Android Market don't go through an approval process like Apple's App Store, thus malware can appear more easily."That was entirely my point. I purposely say that no one can blame Google for letting malware slip in, I'm sure the iTunes app store faces the same issues just slightly less publicized. "The very nature of the Android OS and the store is very open and much larger problems could be brewing."
Jan 15th 2010 10:02PM Thanks a lot for your comments everyone. I apologize if you felt the title was misleading but more and more information is coming out as this whole story develops. I'm curious to see what comes out of the reports being generated and stuff like that. We'll have to see.
Jan 15th 2010 8:58PM It was actually computers on Google's corporate network that were compromised as well. Those computers were running Internet Explorer.
Jan 12th 2010 7:02PM That's a good point. I know a lot of schools and offices block Facebook so it could definitely be convenient for them too.
Dec 30th 2009 7:48PM That was the first thing I thought too. Kind of funny that an internet security company is releasing this. I'm counting down the days until they release some form or anti-virus software or something you have to buy.
Dec 30th 2009 12:27AM Dave, I agree. In theory, the only way to be attacked would be with some kind of user controlled issue - whether it be loading a questionable website or downloading some sketchy content, but just like with the iPhone rick-roll and other hacks that have been found, it could be as easy as exploiting something in the code of the OS as well.

Nov 29th 2009 4:10PM I didn't even make that connection to jailbreaking. Really good point. If they didn't exist, I'm sure Apple wouldn't be fighting as hard for their product in some regards. Just as the jailbreaking keeps Apple improving the iPhone's software out of fear more and more people will do it, I think Psystar is doing something of the same sort.
Nov 29th 2009 4:03PM Ha! Glad you like it. I had fun making it. Totally agree with you. I feel like you'd hit enough road blocks and disappointment and realize that your idea just isn't working the way you'd hope. Oh well.
