    The information in that article is a bit light on details - and like other sites that mention this, has just been taken directly from the official press release.

    Interesting. We have to assume that these were checked by hand to be true positive, but presumably there's no way of knowing how many false negatives. All we can take from it is that it caught 718 more malware items than the scanners & checks those marketplaces employed, and that the method apparently can identify zero-day threats (which is good).

    Would be interesting to know if some marketplaces featured more prominently - for example, how much better is it than 'Bouncer'. It would also be interesting to hear more of this "two-step detection method".

    NQ offer a free security app for Android - for anyone curious ("NQ Mobile Security").
