DroidDream Killer

Developer: Chris Ravenscroft Price: Free

Here's a quickie solution if your Android device has been hit with the DroidDream malware. Essentially, the app acts as a "stop file" that instructs the DroidDream malware to not infect your device. Developer Chris Ravenscroft cautions that while he's been successful in using this application so far, "there is no guarantee that this particular piece of malware or another one will not change their behavior and start ignoring this file." So far the app has received glowing reviews from users, as it has received an average five-star rating on the Android Market. Even so, this should be seen as a quick patch and not a comprehensive security solution.
