An LG spokesperson has denied that it plans to abandon the Windows Phone OS for future phones, but will stick with Android for the moment. After recent news that LG would "take a step back" from Microsoft's mobile OS, it seems that LG has been keen to deny the speculation. A representative stated that the company is currently focusing on Android, the operating system that everyone seems to look for at the moment: "Although we don't have another Windows device in the pipeline at this moment, that is simply because demand for Android devices is so strong."

The malware has an ad-clicking component which Symantec notes hasn't been much discussed, but in fact this component is where the money making comes in.
