Default Android malware continues to rise

According to a report from the Juniper Networks Global Threat Center, malware targeting Google's open source Android mobile operating system has increased by 472 per cent since July of this year. The problem, says Juniper, is that almost anyone can develop and publish an application to the platform's Android Market: "These days, it seems all you need is a developer account, that is relatively easy to anonymize, pay $25 and you can post your applications". Juniper point to the lack of an upfront review process to check that applications do what they say leaving smartphone users with only the developers description of the application to determine whether they want to install it.
