The facts presented say otherwise. I am not concerned about me.

If the masses start using Android, and they are using it, then the
crooks are going to come after it, no if ands or buts about it.  

There are a lot of wolf-tickets being sold in Linux ng(s) with a lot
of lip service babble about how secure Android is, because it's Linux
based.

The facts say otherwise.

Yeah, this Google Android phone is being attacked. And I have to pay
close attention as to what I am doing with it.

You are ridiculous.  You accuse both BB and Big Steel of trolling, and
they are debating each other.  You seem to be confused because in
Usenet a rude insult added to the end of a otherwise intelligent post
is not trolling.  It's just being rude, which with the relatively
anonymous Usenet forum is de rigueur.

Moron.

I'm glad you called yourself a moron.  You certainly are sophmoric.

BB is trolling.  Big Steel is being trolled and I have backed him in this
thread.
Additionally there is a GOOD chance that this isn't the real Bear Bottoms but a
forged
post (including others).

Only if the user is an idiot. You would still have to manually give the trojan
permission to do the things it is designed to do, which kinda defeats the
purpose of the malware to begin with.

How many of the same idiots using the windows o/s give the
permissions all the time? Those same users are using the Android
phone.

It doesn't make any difference on what platform the malware is
running on. If the user participates in the compromise, then the user
is going to be compromised.

All that is needed is a good Social Engineering ploy.

You know that works all too often.
