    Default Android gets GOOGLE'S "BOUNCER" for securing Android market !

    Google has just announced in their Official Mobile Blog Post about the development and release of an addition security parameter codenamed as "Bouncer" that will provide automated scanning of Android Market for potentially malicious software without disrupting the user experience of Android Market or requiring developers to go through an application approval process.

    The analysis will be performed not only on the applications that are to be added , but also on already existing in Android market & Developer's accounts

    What are your views members ?

    This is definitely good news for Android users, since I very recently read somewhere that the platform was facing some serious malware problems!

    Bouncer is not very new per se, It was actually deployed last year. Google is also claiming that compared to the first half of 2011, the second half saw 40 percent less malware on the Android Market. Maybe after all this Malware hype they just announced it public.
