Newest Android Market SPAM

If you see a cross show up in your notification bar telling you of a new updated Market and you click it a browser will open up and take you to a page telling you "Discover Amazing Apps with the Newest Android Market" DO NOT click the link and DO NOT put it your phone number there are reports that doing so you will agree to pay 9.99 a month.


This is SPAM and the reason that you are getting this is because you installed an app and this was loaded with it. The notification will continue to show up in your notification bar from time to time and there is no app that you can uninstall to remove it. Luckily there is a utility called AirPush Detector from the Android Market  that will not only identify what app is causing the SPAM but will let you uninstall it.
