Say hello to Dvmap: The first Android malware with code injection

Re: Sounds like you need a modified device

This was apparently on the Play Store and worked on unmodified devices.

The problem simply is that sandboxes don't work. They may improve security a bit, if you manage to make them without increasing the complexity a lot, but they don't work against malware. We'd probably be better off with a simpler device which features a "mobile touch terminal" that would connect to remote services without actually executing Turing complete code.
