Threatpost – (International) Researchers find methods for bypassing Google’s Bouncer Android security. Google’s Android platform has become the most popular mobile operating system both among consumers and malware writers, and the company introduced the Bouncer system to look for malicious apps in the Google Play market earlier in 2012. Bouncer, which checks for malicious apps and known malware, is a good first step, but as new work from researchers shows, it can be bypassed quite easily and in ways that will be difficult for Google to address in the long term.
