Earlier today Sophos released a Security Threat Report for Android, detailing the several forms of malware that are present on Google’s mobile OS. Not one to be lax in making sure people know they have options, Microsoft’s Windows Phone Twitter account fired up with steps to cure your #DroidRage caused by malware. Recovery steps for getting over your #DroidRage as listed by the Windows Phone account are as follows:
- Wait for your Android phone to get infected with malware
- Recover from SMS scam bill shock
- Skip steps 1 & 2, buy a Windows Phone and connect with people you care about instead of some hacker plotting in a dank basement
Additionally, Microsoft wants to take good care of any Android users who are feeling slighted by Google. They’re soliciting your #DroidRage stories on Twitter and promise to take good care of you. Hmm! We’re betting the best stories will be getting a shiny new HTC 8X.
