Android 4.2’s New Security System

JR Raphael has the details for Computerworld:

The first time you install an app from a source other than the Play Store — including a third-party app market like Amazon’s app store — Android pops up a box asking if you want such applications to be checked for “harmful behavior.”

Very clever. With any luck, this will help stem the attacks of late.
