Android Phones Attacked By Virus GEINIMI

by Rohit Khurana on December 31, 2010


A sophisticated virus has been detected for Android OS and you can call this virus as ‘Geinimi’ and this has got some of the features which might prove quite dangerous for your cellphones. In this post I will be telling you that what are the harmful features which this virus carries and what can you do to stay away from them. Now recently when I have got an Android phone, all the problem are coming on my head now.


We have always been telling you that you should always download the tools from a genuine source and avoid the use of tools which are downloaded from unknown sources because you do not know that what are the other files which are embedded inside that application and what might be the other harmful effects which this tool can cause to your system. The virus which we have mentioned above has not touched any application on the Android market till and that is the best news about this virus till date.


It has been found that these viruses act like the botnets and once they are inside your cellphone they have the capability to control your cellphone with the help of the server to which this application is connected now this is something which is worst for a mobile. This virus was seen in the application developed by a Chinese third party. One of the primary differences between a tool equipped with this virus and the tool free from this virus is the list of the permissions which a tool asks while getting installed on the system. The length of the asked permissions will be too long (out of your visual range) as compared to the normal permission list of a normal tool free from that virus. Till now the type of the Android tools which have been hit by this virus are the games.

So try to download and install the games and application from Android Market. We will keep you updated with any new changes found related to this news topic or any other topic which is related to it and anyhow if you get to know anything related to the news topics mentioned above then please do not hesitate to share it with us, just put it down in the comments section and if we found it genuine then we will be sharing that piece of information with all the other readers on your behalf, so keep searching something useful and then let us know about it.
