    For those of you who have a 3G or even GPS capable Tablet. This is a must read. There may be malicious capability for WiFi Tablets as well
    There is a app that is said to be the old PC game of snake. It also contains a malware to spy on the user. Please read this link for more detail.
    In summary, it installs malware referred to as GPS Spy. It installs both a tracking element and phone home capability for updates. Other malware could be loaded as a pseudo update.

    Be Aware, but do not be scared. Take protective action. Make sure you trust your source for apps and firmware.
