New Android malware virus puts millions of devices at risk

Android has yet another malware issue, this one being nearly impossible to fix.

The new malware puts nearly all Android devices at risk. The malware will attempt to bury itself within the OS, making it hard to locate and then remove. The virus software will gain root-like access to your device. As of now the only way to fully remove the virus software is to boot on a clean ROM or comletely remodel the device’s system files, which can only be done through ADB. If you were thinking full system restore, this will only temporarily resolve the issue, but will then come back. If you’re not very experienced in remodeling your phone/tablet, it may easier to just buy a new phone or send in for a replacement if need be the case. According to Lookout, over 20,000 apps have already been infected with the virus, so be cautious on what you download.
