First Android Security Package Announced

SMobile Systems announced the first security solution for Android based phones. Called “Security Shield”, the software includes antivirus, anti-spam and firewall applications. Essential software for handsets designed around mobile web.

According to SMobile, the current state of Android could allow a virus to “pose as an application and do things like dial phone numbers [and] send text messages.”

A little bit scary, but nothing too worrisome to be sure. We are months away from anyone even owning a handset yet, so there is plenty of time to work out bugs. Read the rest of the article at TG Daily.
