After a two-second "Anti Malware" scan within Norton Security, a dialog box appeared. How boring. The phone was clean. Next up, the intriguing Norton Anti-Theft Plugin. Hopefully, this would entertain me a bit more. Somehow I got directed to an Android Market subscription page where I was given the opportunity to buy a $29.95 Norton subscription for some unknown benefit -- was this not the kind of thing I wanted protection from?

Believe it or not, antivirus software makers are now pitching solutions for our smartphones. Do you believe the hype? Statistics floating around the sea of press releases from antivirus merchants proclaim the end of innocence for our lovable little Android. He's grown up.

The amount of malware aimed at the green-iconed devices jumped almost 37 percent since last quarter, McAfee proclaimed, noting that virtually all new mobile malware in the third quarter was being shot at Android.

Juniper Networks (Nasdaq: JNPR) reported 472 percent jump in malware since July 2011.

While looking around for some protection, I came across the intriguing Norton Anti-Theft Plugin for Android, which I decided to check out.
