Default Android O/S Virus

Here is an FYI you all the Android users about a virus attached to apps. This looks to have come out of the UK but the apps could be anywhere.

Thanks. I'd read a brief story about this, but it did not list the apps infected. This article did.

Norton has a mobile security app that can be downloaded from the Android Market. It scans anything downloaded to your phone. Hope it helps. I have it on mine, but I'm not one to download a bunch of apps anyway.

I'm not much of a downloader either. Just boring news and weather. Will check out the Norton security app. Thanks for the alert.
