Wireless carriers called on lack of security updates for Android devices


Tuesday 05th of February 2013 / talkandroid.com
Mobile security is a big deal on Android devices. While it’s debatable if malware is as big of a problem on Android as security analysts say it is, it’s still very important to keep your devices protected, just in case. Usually, Google does an excellent job of patching most vulnerabilities in their software, the problem is that carriers take way, way too long to get those security patches onto consumer handsets.¬†Activist Chris Soghoian, known for his work with consumer security and privacy, has recently called out wireless carriers on their poor practices with updating these devices.He’s saying what we’ve all been thinking, but he definitely brings to light some of the less thought about problems of slow updates. Most people complain about being stuck on old software because it’s slower or lacks cooler features, but that outdated software also lacks the updated protection that current software would provide. The antivirus on your computer wouldn’t do much good if it was looking for malware from 2010, would it? He also talks about the stock Android

antivirus


Sunday 18th of September 2011 / androidforums.com
okay, i just got an htc evo shift, most of what i am reading are arguments about what does and doesnt work, i've been told that there are no such things as a virus for android's but when you're able to access an actual website like you do on your computer, the proof is there that you can indeed get a virus, yes everyone should be smart about what they download, where they download it from and the websites they visit. i totally agree, i trust google just as much as everyone else does, i use it on a daily basis for everything, as well as facebook. since i am new to the droid family, i would like to know, what is and isn't the best antivirus protection, the best app killer to make sure my battery lasts as long as possible, right now at 100% it lasts 5 1/2 hours which is okay, i'm used to phones lasting 3 days without having to charge it and that's with calls, texts, facebook, email, etc. my antivirus right now is lookout and i have 2 app killers, close everything and battery dr to save bettery. i am well aware that having these things will decrease battery life, but i like to be protect

Free anti-virus? - Page 2


Saturday 17th of December 2011 / androidtablets.net
Well,no, mine comes from the Sony S and it said I use AVG. It is free and not a trial version. Any app you can install, you should be able to uninstall if it does not work for you. At any rate, if you do an Android Market search for Antivirus, it will pcrobably give you several options.Sent from my Sony Tablet S using Android Tablet Forum

Thursday 29th of March 2012 / androidforums.com
OK, so I pressed Recovery on my phone, to back it up, and it soft bricked phone.Happens to be at work, and for the love of god, I can't find Samsung drivers anywhere. As in - they are removed from most sites, or sites are seized, or files removed, or I get this: Details: Web page: http://www.androphiles.com/files/android/Samsung_Mobile_USB_Driver.exe Description: Access to the web page was blocked by ESET NOD32 Antivirus. The web page is on the list of websites with potentially dangerous content.and I can not turn this antivirus off.anyone has WORKING link? xda doesn't, rootzwiki doesn't, one from here is busted too. CSR from Verizon brought me to - oh, vow - samsung website, that does not have them either.

Phone turns to vibrate only when receiving a call; Android 4.2.2; Acer Liquid E2


Saturday 10th of August 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hello, please if anybody has any advice on how to solve this issue. The phone turns to vibrate only mode when someone calls me. Some background that might help to solve the issue:If I just get a message or a notification then it stays in the general profile, but calling changes the profile to meeting. It might be some application or something but don't know what. I tried uninstalling AVG antivirus as was suggested somewhere but no help. I am not exactly sure when this started to happen, but a problem might be that I used a Zedge ringtone but then I uninstalled Zedge thinking the app is not necessary anymore. I have installed it back recently and downloaded new ringtones but no luck. If I try to use the basic ringtones not from Zedge, no luck either. One other thing that might have been a cause of this problem is that I had an SD card in the phone that stopped working, not sure if the ringtones were stored on there or no, but now I have a new SD card that does work
