In a little shown display of power, Google excercized it’s mobile muscle on it’s Android operating system over the last few days. It came to the attention of the mobile team of malicious software being made available on the market, and they quickly stepped in to isolate and destroy the offending apps.
What they did next, was show how much control that they have remotely to your Android software. I’ve read estimates that tens of thousands of users were affected by the software, and with the flick of a switch, Google removed the software from the infected devices. They remotely uninstalled the software from the handsets and for a final resolution recommend resetting the phones to factory default for good measure.
