I have a myTouch 3G for T-mobile and I have reason to believe that there is a virus on my phone. I've downloaded an antivirus app from the androd market but it says my phone is clean.
Issue: My phone is synced with my gmail account and notifies me of any e-mails that I receive when I receive them. I received a notification this morning to sign into my account as the password I have is incorrect and for me to enter my password. I proceed to log into Gmail via my laptop and it advised me that my account have come unusual activity. After logging in and changing my password, I checked the history of log-in & IP address and discovered that someone logged in via a mobile device with an IP address based in Saudi Arabia. I did also receive a delivery failure notification with a link to a website (100% sure its spam) from my e-mail to another one of my g-mail accounts.
Analysis: Based on the above, I feel that my account was compromised via a mobile device as I have not logged into my g-mail for quite some time on my laptop or any other PCs. This makes me weary to even log into my mobile banking app on my android phone.
Question: Is this possible? What's the best way to clear this up on my phone without having to purchase another android phone? Will resetting the phone clear up this issue? Will T-mobile replace my android for this reason or is this not covered under the phone's warranty? (probably a stupid question, and they probably won't cover this).
Any thoughts or suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
Sounds more like somebody used another wireless device to do this. Not from your phone.
My speed on my t-mobile G2 !!!
