Graboid Spyware

Be careful with Graboid.  If you google “Graboid spyware” you will see false reports that Graboid does not try to install any spyware, however if you have Spyware Doctor installed (free from google) it will catch a “high risk” item that appears right after Graboid has finished installing.

As of this writing that seems to be enough to block all malware from Graboid—there does not appear to be other malware packaged with it, however no guarantees for the future.

Other than the issue of malware, it appears that Graboid has improved a lot since earlier versions.
