Recently, Google has removed 22 malware infected applications from its Android Market. The apps in question, spotted by security firm Lookout, mainly targeted Android smartphone users across Europe and included premium SMS fraud services that cost users money.
The main culprit was called RuFraud and affected users all throughout Europe. The malware didnt’ make it across seas to the U.S.
This latest malware scare has caused Microsoft’s Windows Phone evangelist Ben Rudolph to make an offer through Twitter to Android users who have been affected by this malware.
On Monday Rudolph tweeted, “More malware on Android! Been hit? Share yr #droidrage story to win a #windowsphone upgrade. 5 best (worst?) win!” and later “Been nailed with Android malware and have #Droidrage? Share [your] story with me … you might win an upgrade to a #windowsphone!”
People have been sending in their stories all day. Time to send in yours!
