Lockheimer said he could not say how many malicious apps had been blocked or removed from the market as a result of the scanning. Asked if Google created Bouncer in response to complaints about malicious apps on the Android Market, Lockheimer said no. "It's not like there is a rampant malware problem," he said. "Think of it as an insurance policy..to ensure that Android continues to be a safe place.". Mobile security firm Lookout found that there were about 1,000 malicious Android apps last year, but the vast majority were on unofficial, third-party sites where anything goes. But some malicious apps have made it to the Android Market, including about two dozen apps containing malware that Google yanked in May and nearly 60 malicious apps removed in March.

What were they thinking at first?" said Chris Wysopal, chief technology officer at application security provider Veracode, who had called on Google to scan Android apps in March of last year. . "Both Apple and Microsoft started their app stores with a validation process. Blocking known malware patterns is a no-brainer.". "I hope Google can keep up with published rootkit code and research on vulnerabilities and add these patterns to their scanners," he added. "The process should be proactive and not have a window of time when tens or hundreds of thousands of mobile users can be compromised before the malware is detected and removed.".
Kevin Mahaffey, chief technology officer at Lookout, said Google's move was a "step in the right direction.", "We think it is great that Google is working with the Android community to provide an alternative to a manual curation process, allowing developers to innovate quickly while also increasing the baseline level of security for Android users," he said, Updated 2:02 p.m, PT with comments from Chris Wysopal and Kevin Mahaffey, New service scans apps for malicious code or behavior and bounces them if they vrs design damda glide iphone x case - white are suspect..
