Hi Everybody,

I'm working on an article about security, malware, and the Android OS. In the course of my research, I can find a ton of stats about the prevalence of malware on Android and tales of scary malicious apps, phishing attacks, etc. But what's missing are the real world stories of people actually telling about a specific Android malware attack and how it affected them, whether it stole personal info, cost them money from premium texts, stuff like that.

I was wondering if anybody had a story they might share. Or know anybody who has one. I'm trying to put a human face on this issue. Thanks!
