XDA Developer Creates Patch For DroidDream Malware

Leave it to the developers at XDA for everything. You know the old motto “there’s an app for that” well with XDA “They’ll make an app for that” and that’s what they’ve done.

XDA user Rodderik has created a patch to prevent damage from the recent DroidDream malware.  The malware that we’ve been talking about since late Tuesday night, only affects Android versions lower than 2.3 (which unless you have a Nexus S or Nexus One that’s everyone).

Rodderik’s patch for all pre-gingerbread devices.

The affected apps are:

The offending apps from publisher Myournet:

* Falling Down
* Super Guitar Solo
* Super History Eraser
* Photo Editor
* Super Ringtone Maker
* Super Sex Positions
* Hot Sexy Videos
* Chess
* 下坠滚球_Falldown
* Hilton Sex Sound
* Screaming Sexy Japanese Girls
* Falling Ball Dodge
* Scientific Calculator
* Dice Roller
* 躲避弹球
* Advanced Currency Converter
* App Uninstaller
* 几何战机_PewPew
* Funny Paint
* Spider Man
* 蜘蛛侠

Now under normal conditions we would tell you to watch what you do and we aren’t responsible yadda yadda yadda, and you still are responsible for your own phone but if you understand the instructions over at XDA then this may be a lifesaver.

Continue to XDA for the instructions.  Also Roderrik worked hard for this so once you install it buy him a beer with the donate button and if your phone is infected and this patch fixes it, buy him a six pack
