      Default Android Is Finally Stepping Up Its Game


      Google’s Hiroshi Lockheimer,the vice-president of engineering for Android, announced that the company has finallyimplemented malware detection forapps in the Android Market. Stories of Trojan-infested apps purporting tobe popular software like Angry Birds have become all too common, so this has been long overdue for Google.After months of internal testing, its malware scanner called Bouncer is now flexing itsmuscles and saying “it is soooooooo on!” When we heard the name Bouncer, itinstantly conjured up a ’roids-jacked orange dude with a cable-knit sweater tuckedinto his frighteningly tight jeans. Here’s hoping Google’s software tough-guy is better at bouncing would-be Trojans than he is at dressing himself. Google was quick to point out that Bouncer doesn’t introduce an approval process into the Android Market application process -- something it still touts as anadvantage over Apple’s stricter but slower iOS AppStore approval process. Bouncer simply scans newly submitted apps for the typicalfingerprints of malware and then periodically checks it again for suspicious updates.Google claims that this resulted in a 40% decrease in potentially malicious downloads.I don’t know what school Google went to if it considers4/10 an acceptable test score, but we’ll give it the benefit of the doubt in hopesthat it will build a more accurate profile of malware variants and the their developers,who are known to the rest of the world as “dickheads.” Continue Reading
