Google introduces additional protection mechanisms in the Android Market

    Today, Google announced that it is introducing additional means of protecting users from malware. No, this is not about moderation of applications, but about an antivirus for the application portal. This anti-virus called Bouncer will scan all new applications, as well as the database of old applications for malicious code according to virus definitions. In case of suspicions of danger, the application will be launched in the Google cloud infrastructure to detect suspicious activity.
