Google still scrambling to recover from DroidDream Android attack

Ellen Messmer | March 9, 2011
Last week's revelation that over 50 apps in the Google Android market were malware-laden has shaken up Google and the security industry to its core.

It will be rolled out in a few months, says Yaron Dycian, vice president of products at Trusteer. It won't be called Rapport, like Trusteer's current PC-based browser software and service for the banking industry, but will be sold under WorkLight's brand and will be for general enterprise use.

If a device is infected, the app simply wouldn't run, explains Ron Perry, CTO for WorkLight about one approach taken with Trusteer.

Like other security vendors, Trusteer views DroidDream as a turning point in mobile malware. "It'll only escalate from here, no doubt," Dycian said.
