New version of Play Store app hints at built-in malware scanner and new wish list feature

by: Gary SimsOctober 12, 2012
A new version of the Play Store app has been released and it is starting to roll out to Android owners. Google Play Store 3.9.16 includes the ability to remove apps from the All Apps list. This is particularly useful if you have tried various free apps and choose not to use them. At the moment the All Apps list can become quite cluttered as it remembers every app you downloaded from the beginning of time. However more intriguing is that the contents of the .apk file (that is the application package file, the way apps are bundled up and distributed) contains references to a built-in malware scanner and a wish list feature.

Jelly Bean security significantly improved to discourage malware attacks

by: Chris SmithJuly 17, 2012

It’s no secret to Android fans that the security of their favorite mobile platform has been often questioned after various malware programs managed to bypass security measures and affect Android devices – quite a few malware-containing apps even made it to the Google Play store. In addition to that, the Android devices themselves were prone to being attacked by smart hackers that knew what to look for in order to trigger malicious actions on the device.

The latest malware app to be discovered is called (or rather was called) “Find and Call” and has already been removed from Google Play. What’s interesting is that the spam-sending app managed to make its way to iOS as well, a platform that has been praised as much more secure than Android.
