    Thumbs up Android Protection for Missed Call Attack

    TechCrunch reported a new kind of scam attack: , ringing your smart phone shortly and hanging up immediately to leave you a missed call. If you call these numbers back, you may see some additional charge in your phone bill next month. A new feature is added in Super Security & Antivirus that incoming calls hang up within short seconds will be labeled as suspicious phone numbers. These numbers will be sent to server for further analysis and shared with other users if they are recognized as scam numbers.

    Never thought of something like this to happen. But then again I am one where if they don't leave a message, I am not going to return the call. Thanks for the link to the app.
