Several Android applications removed from market. Do you have malware on your phone?

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

If you own an Android device, now may be a good time to review your list of installed applications. Several applications were recently removed from the Marketplace after it was found that they contained spyware designed to steal your data and further infect your phone. The full article at Mashable describes the issue in more detail and includes the complete list of applications. Here’s a short list of applications that you should immediately remove from your phone if you find that they’ve been installed:

* Falling Down
* Super Guitar Solo
* Super History Eraser
* Photo Editor
* Super Ringtone Maker
* Super Sex Positions
* Hot Sexy Videos
* Chess
* Hilton Sex Sound
* Screaming Sexy Japanese Girls
* Falling Ball Dodge
* Scientific Calculator
* Dice Roller
* Advanced Currency Converter
* APP Uninstaller
* Funny Paint
* Spider Man

As always, be careful with applications on your phone! Much like a computer you should never install a program unless it is from a trusted source that you know and respect, and do as much research on the application as you can before putting it on your phone. One great thing about the Android is that it tells you exactly what type of access an application requires during the installation process. If you’re installing an application that is asking for contact details or internet access (and it really shouldn’t be), don’t install it.
