FREE Norton Mobile Secruity for Androids

If you haven't gotten a virus on your Android smart phone, I'd say you've been remarkably lucky. Recently smartphone operating systems have been plagued by a myriad of Trojan viruses including "GGTracker" and "DroidDream" which harvest users' phone info and download malware to their phones from remote servers. Ugh. But there are plenty of FREE Android security stystems available, from companies including Lookout Mobile, ESTsoft and AVG. And now anti-virus giant Symantec has released Norton Mobile Security Lite, a FREE Android app that automatically scans downloaded apps and app updates for potential threats, detects and blocks phishing websites or other compromised sites. More info on the Norton system here.
