Many of us have heard about the recent virus/malware planted within apparently dozens of apps, some were in the Market (now pulled) and so an industrious Senior Member at XDA, Rodderick, has found a way to patch our non-Gingerbread phones to prevent it from being able to carry out it's function. It's quite easy, so read about it here:

XDA Developer Creates Patch For DroidDream Malware Android Phones, Android Tablets, News, Tech, Gadgets And More, Thedroidguy (http://thedroidguy.com/2011/03/xda-developer-creates-patch-for-droiddream-malware/)

Here is the XDA thread:

Here's the latest from Google on the incident and what they are doing about it:

Its called droid dreamer do not download it I used it and noticed today my name was double posted at the exact same time submitting two positive reviews for the app hence why I restored and maderstocked my x back to normal its a malware app I noticed it when I was looking at it in app brain the posts were made at the exact same minute on the same day seems very unlikely that someone with the same name as me would post at the exact same minute I did

Sent from my DROIDX using Droid X Forum App

Can someone please help me. My droid x will start up, but after that, all i can do is pull down the notification bar, and select items on it like emails or texts, but as soon as the bar goes up, nothing works. Hard buttons dont do anything but eventually make the home screen refresh. I can't get to the menu or the app list. I cant select anything on the home screen either. Please tell me I can fix it! Thanks all.
