Android is already the most popular mobile OS,  but this has its bad sides.Especially for the end users. Some of the worst things out there are viruses and a new one has just been reported. It’s spreading through the Market and it’s a copy of the Google+ app. The virus, which was spotted by Trend Micro, contains an old code, that has just been improved and is now known as Nickispy.C. The application is called Google++ and it uses the same icon as the official one. After it gains access to your phone, the virus collects information about your texts, calls and location and it can even answer your incoming calls. The good news are, that it only works with Android 2.2 B.A.
