    just took a closer look at that and other articles. they are not saying exactly how the android devices are being infected. just saying it has something to do with port 5555 being opened during some debugging. now how are we going to protect ourselves...

    I guess we are going to have to disable and re enable adb debugging every time.

    I'm one who have it enabled all the time for adb updates.
