I just got caught by this crap. I recently installed Line Runner and Funny Bus games and the search icon popped up on one of my screens. Lookout didn't even catch it. I uninstalled both games (icon on screen stayed) and installed Norton Lite. Says phone is safe but now I'm paranoid. Malware is malware right?
