Malware Preinstalled: Space Dodgems in the Android Belt

David Bisson, for Graham Cluley’s blog, comments on a story that These 26 brand new Android smartphones come with malware pre-installed. The article is based on Dr Web’s blog post listing 26 models of Android phone that you might want to avoid:  Doctor Web discovers Trojans in firmware of well-known Android mobile devices.

Personally, though, I liked most a tweeted observation by Mark Noble.

Which kind of dovetails with another tweet by my friend and colleague Stephen Cobb:

(Stephen was referring to this article, by the way: Support Scams and Diagnostic Services.)
