Hello, I am an Android user (4.4.2)
I have a question about bluetooth security.
If I connect to another Android device that is infected with a virus, is there a chance that mine can get infected too? Doesn't bluetooth security feature disallow transfer of data that is not approved by the users?
Also is there any Android security feature that can deal with this?

Thank you

No android virus has ever been found.
Check my post from yesterday in this thread for a link explaining why.

It seems like xda users generally agree that there is no Android virus.
But what about FBI documents and bunch of articles that talk about android virus? Are they lying?

I'm not in the group of generally agreeing, I'm in the group of, read some informative articles explaining why its not even possible. Then posted a link to one of said articles in another thread last night. (The noob friendly thread)
