After reading other threads, I thought I should still post this. Some user couldn't understand why one would get excited about viruses...because they have been around forever. Well, the difference is that PC users have learned how to deal with them with virus protection, knowing what to look for, etc. The android operating systems is completely foreign to a non-techinical person. Also, after viewing the market for many hours, I have yet to see anything that says, 'you need to protect your tablet', so I guess one falls into a sense of security from that. Anyway, I installed a remote control app to connect my tablet to my other 2 pcs. It worked great... only today, when I attempted to access a site on my tablet, it kept redirecting me to some japanesse site (that also didn't exist). So I just went to my other 2 pcs... the same thing, only 1 of my pcs (with norton) alerted me to a block it just did of a malicious cookie with the same japanesse name. Since my 2 pcs are heavily guarded by virus protections, I can only asusme my tablet became infected and infected my other devices. Luckily, clearing the browser caches, etc. and a reboot of all 3 devices seemd to do the trick. So, my question is how does one protect a tablet from such things? Is remote control truly a safe practice??
