    I was just informed that an Android Virus is now starting to show up.
    I guess it's called Droid Dream Virus. Anyone hear of this?

    Malware is not a Virus.

    Malware not a virus now I know the difference. How can I protect my phone? Is there an APP for that?

    There is but since I see no need for one, I'll let someone who uses one chime in.

    I like lookout. sure, its antivirus etc, but I like the extras it comes with much better. like remote wipe or phone locator if I lose my phone, among other things.

    Android Phonesget infected with DroidDream Malware

    DroidDream malware sends out a download pop-up to the user to install malicious software on the mobile handset. If a user mistakenly accepts the invitation, then it carries out unnecessary tasks in the background without the user’s permission. This time, thousands of Android-based mobile phones got infected because of its variant.

    I am going to run this app, and see if it finds anything suspicious, if does, great, but if not, it gets uninstalled.
