However, it is only effective if the Android device is in "USB debugging" mode. Therefore, if "USB debugging" is OFF on your Android device, you can breathe a huge sigh of relief. However, you should make sure that your Anti-Virus software deletes the following files from your PC if they are found:
- Trojan.Droidpak (DLL File)
- Android.Fakebank.B (AV-cdk.apk File)
- Android Debug Bridge (adb.exe File)
If you plan to continue to be a Windows user, you will have to monitor this situation regularly with your Anti-Virus software and make sure your Android device has "USB debugging" set to OFF.
If you don't want to deal with this regularly, you might want to migrate to a Linux PC instead. Either install a Linux partition on your Windows PC so that you can dual boot Linux and Windows. Surf the web and open email when you're on Linux and boot into Windows if you have to work on native Windows applications. Or you could just buy a Linux laptop from Linux vendors. If you found this useful, please share this with your friends who are Android users as well.
