Get ready for a case of the creepy crawlies, because we just got a list of the scariest malicious attacks on smart phones to date, and it's full of worms, snakes, evil bunnies ... and Rick Astley.
If you've got an Android phone and don't yet know the name Lookout, get familiar with it quick. It's sort of like a Norton Anti-Virus for your Android phone, only it's free and doesn't annoy you with constant pop-ups. Because the mobile security company scours the globe uncovering threats to Android and iPhone, they were kind enough to fill us in on the nastiest ploys and cyber cons.
Before you go freaking out, just be aware that these beasties are not so much running loose in the Android App Market and the iPhone App Store as they are festering out past the protective borders of the legitimate app business. Though they use different methods, Apple and Google are pretty good about monitoring what goes into their app stores. You should worry most if you're seeking ways to try to download premium apps without paying, trying to score bootleg apps available for "jailbroken" iPhones, or visiting any shady alternative Android app markets.
