Submission + - Android App infects PCs running older Windows->

tlhIngan writes: "In an interesting turn of events, a couple of apps found the Play Store was found to contain a payload designed to infect the SD card and thus infect any older PC when the Android device was connected in drive mode. It doesn't appear to be designed to infect the Android device itself, just install an old exploit on the SD card that will infect the PC when connected. It relies on AutoRun, which while disabled in all modern versions of Windows, may still be on by default on older versions."
