I've had my phone for a year and nothing like this has ever happened to me before. I just had a pop up in the notification bar about a new app. Not an update to one I already have, but the Market logo saying there is a new app to download. Curious, I take a look and it opens me into the Android Market to download "Mobo Task Killer Pro" (no I don't use any task killers and not trying to start up that debate again). So I start to wonder if this was some new official Google thing (it's not) and I look into it a bit deeper. I didn't download but looking into it I find it curiously has all these positive reviews which I find odd due to the ongoing Task Killer debate, but that's not what this post is about. Taking a look at the permissions I see lots of stuff that I'd question, like why it would need access to be able to create network sockets and bluetooth connections. I'm wondering how this app download was pushed to my phone? I wasn't using my phone at all and it had been sitting idle all morning. Seems sort of reminiscent of the "Airpush" ads debacle but in any case I'm not thrilled with an app download being pushed to my phone. Worse than that, I hate to think that someone is trying to push out malware. Maybe I'm just paranoid, but either way, I don't like it. Below is the list of permissions it wants. NETWORK COMMUNICATION FULL INTERNET ACCESS Allows an application to create network sockets. CREATE BLUETOOTH CONNECTIONS Allows an application to view configuration of the local Bluetooth device, and to make and accept connections with paired devices. YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION READ SENSITIVE LOG DATA Allows an application to read from the system's various log files. This allows it to discover general information about what you are doing with the device, potentially including personal or private information. STORAGE MODIFY/DELETE USB STORAGE CONTENTS MODIFY/DELETE SD CARD CONTENTS Allows an application to write to the USB storage. Allows an application to write to the SD card. SYSTEM TOOLS BLUETOOTH ADMINISTRATION Allows an application to configure the local Bluetooth device, and to discover and pair with remote devices. WRITE SYNC SETTINGS Allows an application to modify the sync settings, such as whether sync is enabled for Contacts. CHANGE WI-FI STATE Allows an application to connect to and disconnect from Wi-Fi access points, and to make changes to configured Wi-Fi networks. MODIFY GLOBAL SYSTEM SETTINGS Allows an application to modify the system's settings data. Malicious applications can corrupt your system's configuration.
