Fake Angry Birds Space app for Android is a Trojan Horse as it sneaks in malware
check the app's developer. If you have installed Angry Birds Space, double check to make sure that it came from Rovio. If not, it might behoove you to back up all of your important data and securely wipe your phone. Earlier this year, Google announced a feature for what was then called the Android Market. Called "Bouncer", the feature was to do exactly what you would expect, analyzing new apps to keep out malware, spyware and trojan horses. Bouncer also analyzes new developer accounts to make sure that problem developers aren't using a new name to ply their old game. Just like at those hot clubs, sometimes the Bouncer is distracted and someone gets in that shouldn't have.
